1. Innovative Alpine Space


BE-READI ALPS adapts start-up support services to the needs of mature SMEs in the Alpine Space and offers them a “second life” by giving them access to new opportunities in an open innovation perspective. 

CIRCULAR4.0 takes advantage of digitisation processes to support the transition to circular economy of SMEs in the Alpine region.

DEAS exploits linked open data to develop new products and services on mobility, environment and the sector of tourism. Through a dedicated strategy, it boosts the data economy in the alpine areas. 

HEALPS 2 fosters a better use of Alpine natural health resources for the development of tourism. It implements new business models and strengthens territorial innovation in Alpine destinations. 

T.A.A.F.E enhances the capacities of public authorities and service providers to develop sustainable age-friendly environments in the Alpine Space, through participatory co-creation methods.

2. Low Carbon Alpine Space


ALPGRIDS creates a transnational enabling environment for the development of low-carbon electric microgrids by addressing regulatory issues and organisational-business challenges.

e-SMART designs, tests and validates transnational instruments for an integrated planning of e-mobility smart grid services and charging stations for local public transport and last mile freight logistics.  

LinkingAlps connects Alpine mobility information services to foster a modal shift from private to low carbon passenger transport (e.g. public and on-demand), thus offering integrated mobility chains for passenger trips.

3. Liveable Alpine Space


ADO sets up an innovative Alpine wide drought monitoring system and develops recommendations for improved risk preparedness and drought management efficiency in the Alpine Space.

ALPTREES investigates the expected benefits and potential risks of non-native trees in the Alpine Space, by developing a transnational strategy to foster responsible use and management practices. 

LUIGI promotes green infrastructure in Alpine rural and urban areas by assessing its economic, environmental and social benefits and by developing new business models and policies. 

OpenSpaceAlps fosters a multi-level, transnational spatial-planning governance in order to maintain open spaces as part of the Alpine green infrastructure, thus supporting sustainable development in the Alps.

4. Well-Governed Alpine Space


A-RING provides the framework for joint Alpine research and innovation policies through coordinated and transnational multi-level governance.

AlpGov 2
AlpGov2 takes the mechanisms and instruments developed in the framework of its predecessor (AlpGov) to the decision-making level in order to ensure the strategic implementation of the EUSALP Action Plan.  

ARDIA-Net develops a multi-level research, development and innovation framework for Alpine governance. This framework enables cooperation in smart specialisation strategies implementation.
