From June 2018 onwards, the #MadewithAlpineSpace campaign takes you on a journey to discover the best results of the Alpine Space projects. Every month a new programme message will be published and project highlights featured on this page, our social media (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn) and our newsletter.
Keep posted and learn about impact of successful transnational cooperation in the Alpine Space!
"Transnational cooperation funding is decisive in making macro-regional strategies work".
The Alpine Space programme co-finances projects in which strong complementarities with the EU strategy for the Alpine Region (EUSALP) are sought. The projects provide targeted solutions designed for the Alpine region, bridging gaps between local/national and EU-wide initiatives.
AlpGov: implementing Alpine governance mechanisms of the European Strategy for the Alpine Region
Since its start, the European Strategy for the Alpine Region (EUSALP) has been contributing to multi-level cooperation between Alpine States and Regions. Nine action groups are dealing with the different priorities identified within the strategy.
The AlpGov project serves as the main tool for making EUSALP governance operable and effective. In its supporting role, it strengthens horizontal cooperation among action groups and empowers them to involve relevant fields of expertise and society. The project also collects and shares knowledge by providing a professional tool, the joint EUSALP knowledge platform, while establishing a dialogue with financing and funding instruments to boost implementation initiatives and promoting further development of tailor-made governance approaches for single action groups to improve their effects.
Furthermore, AlpGov triggers the development of concrete implementation initiatives by providing resources and clarifying political or financial frame conditions in a transnational context, with a view to securing a sustainable and livable future of the Alpine Region.
