On 20 September 2011, the Ortler project was officially presented at two separate events.
The project was firstly presented during a press conference, chaired by Luis Durwalder, President of the Autonomous Province of Bolzano/Bozen.
A short scientific conference was also held at EURAC, where the scientific and logistical representatives of the research project presented the work they will be carrying out over the coming days, when they will extract an ice core from the summit glacier of the Ortler. The ice core will be examined in order to obtain paleoclimatic information. (Picture gallery of the EURAC presentation)
