Enhance institutional capacity of public authorities and stakeholders to implement macro-regional strategies and sea-basin strategies, as well as other territorial strategies
What is it about?
The Alpine region is characterised by a long tradition of international and inter-regional cooperation on governmental and non-governmental level.
This Interreg-specific action offers the possibility to deepen cooperation and governance structures in the Alpine region. The Interreg Alpine Space programme aims at further clarifying, deepening, supporting, and improving cooperation structures, with a particular focus on the professionalization of governance and stakeholder structures as well as on preparing the ground for innovative projects and a stronger involvement of the civil society. This should contribute to improved synergies, supporting EUSALP in developing an appropriate governance system.
Furthermore, the actions of the Interreg specific objective also aim at addressing and involving further relevant cooperation frameworks within the Alpine region – from professional structures like the Alpine Convention and to Alpine wide governance initiatives interested in the further enhancement of Alpine regions´ governance structures, as specified in the indicative types of actions below.
Indicative types of actions
The programme is looking to support the following indicative types of action:
Setting up transnational frameworks, platforms, networks and mechanisms in the field of governance to enhance cooperation between Alpine stakeholders including the mapping of resources, potentials and processes as well as defining innovative implementation pathways and structures;
Developing and implementing solutions to enhance cooperation and organisation processes within the EUSALP governance structure;
Developing solutions and pilot projects for communication measures and tools to support multi-level governance, reaping the benefits of digitalization;
Supporting capacity building and trainings for public authorities and stakeholders at different policy and governance-levels in order to adapt to new challenges (e.g. digitalization, professionalization, process-innovation);
Developing tailor-made strategies and solutions for the integration of and communication with stakeholders at different policy and governance-levels, as well as with the civil society – also including “the next generation” (youth) – and non-institutional actors;
Fostering and implementing knowledge transfer, exchange and capitalisation activities addressing the major governance aspects and key stakeholders of the Alpine region;
Fostering the use of available funding instruments for governance support and EUSALP implementation;
Developing and implementing joint solutions for monitoring, reporting and evaluating multilevel and transnational policy instruments;
Implementing joint pilot projects for the design, testing, up-scaling, comparison and evaluation of innovations in the field of public administration;
Developing mechanisms for the uptake and implementation of multilevel and transnational governance.
