Project aim is to foster sustainable development of Alpine Space by maintaining open spaces as part of alpine Green Infrastructure through a interlinked, multi-level transnational spatial governance considering integration of ecosystems functions and needs into policies.
Ecosystem services provided by lakes and rivers are facing serious threats under the pressure of anthropogenic impacts, climate change, biodiversity loss and invasion of exotic species. The assessment of these changes is still defined by traditional criteria, which include time-consuming and expensive approaches (e.g. classical identification of aquatic species). The main aim of the project [...]
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 [...]
THE4BEES builds on the hypothesis: Energy is consumed by people rather than by buildings. Although most of the strategies to achieve energy efficiency in buildings focus on technical mitigation measures, to reach the ambitious goals on Low Carbon set by EU and Alpine Strategy (EUSALP), both structural and soft approaches shall be considered complementarily across the Alpine Space. THE4BEES [...]
MELINDA generates a participative development of a low carbon and sustainable urban, suburban and transnational mobility by smoothing the way to citizen awareness and engagement, through a better understanding of user demand and conceiving alternative/innovative modalities. Its general objective is to support policy making on mobility, air quality, territorial development, contributing to [...]
Historic architecture – traditional mountain farmhouses as well as historic villages and towns – is a symbol of the Alpine region’s cultural diversity and forms a fundamental part of its identity, particularly for the local and regional population. However, these buildings are often located in deprived areas and provide low levels of energy efficiency and comfort. The protection and [...]
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.
12 partners from 6 different countries has met into the GRETA project with the aim to demonstrate the potential of Near-Surface Geothermal Energy (NSGE) in the Alpine Space and to share its knowledge to foster the integration of this technology into future energy plans in the area at different administrative levels. This approach will help to reduce total CO2-emissions in environmentally [...]
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 [...]
