Project Summary

MediaAlp is a vertical network focused on cultural sector as an economic factor for regional development. Its goal: support exploitation of the potential of identity resources towards economic, social, entrepreneurial development. It’s an integrated set of actions aimed at setting up a common platform where stakeholders share and diffuse information:
• within Alpine Space, promoting dialogue and exchange of knowledge among economic operators (providing them information on local resources, infrastructures, demand), local authorities, universities and media operators, with the aim of fostering cooperation and support integrated territorial development based on the exploitation of culture economy;
• Externally, developing services and tools for circulation and spread of information centred on a Media Agency that integrates internet, radio and TV. Activities will concentrate on mountain areas although special attention will be paid to interaction with urban areas.

Project Objectives

Project activities are divided in two streamlines: “Internal” activities aimed at the creation of a network within the Alpine area among the key players involved. This network will promote and support dialogue, exchange of experiences, sharing of knowledge, effective co-operation and the definition of new development strategies based on the resources of the local identities. “External activities” aimed at communicating the image, opportunities and resources of the MediaAlp environment towards all cultural operators.
