e-MOTICON GUIDELINES for integration of Electric Charging Stations (E-CS) interoperability in local and regional policies
The new European project e-Moticon has as main objective the promotion and dissemination of the e- mobility in AS regions: Italy, Austria, France, Germany and Slovenia. The development in the Public Administrations of a common transnational strategy for the planning of charging infrastructure through a funding of almost 2 million euro, whithin in 30 months, will have the task of overcoming [...]
Ecological connectivity (EC) is the basis of Alpine (&global) habitat & species protection. However, much work remains in realizing an integrative concept of ecosystem and biodiversity (BD) protection for the Alps (with EC existing at different territorial levels). The project’s main objective is to consolidate & enhance transnational coop. in the field of nature conservation while [...]
testing support services for companies to enhance transnational business transfer and transfering the outcomes at policy level to synchronize programs and approaches
The Alps are a sensitive ecosystem to be protected from pollutant emissions & climate change. Continued growth in freight traffic volume leads to environmental problems. These trends reinforce the need to review existing transport & develop innovative models to protect the Alpine Space (AS) as set out eg. in the EU (White Paper 2011). EUSALP set the aim to strengthen ecological transport & [...]
Ecosystems and their services go beyond national borders and therefore need a transnational approach for their protection, sustainable use, management and risk prevention. As a basis for joint action, public authorities, policy makers, NGOs, researchers and economic players – the AlpES target groups – need a common understanding of ecosystem services, comparable information on their [...]
River hydromorphological processes have a key role to provide ecosystem services (ES) in Alpine Space. The HyMoCARES project has developed a conceptual framework, currently not available, and operational tools to integrate ES in Alpine river basin planning and management, with a special focus on factors affecting river hydromorphology. Particular care will be devoted to identify actual [...]
GoApply will contribute to the vertical and horizontal integration and further development of national strategies and action plans on Climate Change Adaptation and will foster and improve the interlinkage of the associated existing governance structures/strategies on all levels.
Due to a lack of personal and professional fulfilment, more and more young people tend to leave the Alpine region. This results in a demographic change of society and leads to a shrinking population. At the same time political indifference and a decline of confidence in traditional democratic mechanisms can be observed among young people, as they feel neglected. Furthermore a majority of [...]
BIFOCAlps project is tackling a common challenge to many Alpine Space (AS) regions: due to globalisation, many enterprises in Manufacturing Sector (MS) are not as competitive as wished in global markets, resulting in increased levels of unemployment, abandoned facilities and remaining plants that need new products and new processes. On the other hand, AS has a strong R&D sector and [...]
