AlpSib Transnational Methodology for social impact investing policies

This compact report gives an initial overview over the examined three value chains of apples, walnuts and herbs/hay in the first work package of AlpBioEco and builds up the base for further work packages. The work package T1 has been developed under the leadership of the Bavarian AlpBioEco project partner, KErn, Competence Center for Nutrition. Although the investigated value chains have its specific peculiarities, a replicable roadmap for the analysis of bio-based value chains could be developed based on the learnings in the project. The roadmap shall be a standardised guide to analyse value chains with bioeconomic aspects and potentials in regions like the Alpine Space.

SMART SPACE strategy to strengthen AS SMEs’ digitisation processes

Smart Space strategy contains strategic actions to reinforce the cooperation and the collaborations within the Alpine Space area on the topic of digitization of traditional SMEs. The Smart Space Strategy has been built on 4 pillars, with a list of actions and expected outputs for each of the pillars.

Low Carbon


AlpInnoCT Toolbox of Action

The virtual Toolbox of Action summarizes the main results and aims to provide information for political and economic decision makers and the civil society, on how Combined Transport can be fostered in Europe and the Alpine Space for a successful shift of freight traffic, from road to rail.


Low Carbon Timber Toolkit

The publication enables planners and architects to better assess various aspects of sustainability of products and construction materials at an early stage of the planning process. Thus it sets the course for more sustainable buildings.


e_MOTICON WHITEBOOK for integrated planning of E_CS

e-MOTICON White Book includes the e-MOTICON strategy for the planning of interoperable E-CS network across the whole Alpine Space area, coherent with EU Policies and Alpine Space Strategy (EUSALP). It might be considered a strategic support for regional and local Public Administrations in definition of their policy in supporting e-mobility. The strategy is integrated and customized into five Regional Action Plans that propose actions to be implemented to reach short, medium and long-term objectives to plan an integrated E-CS in the Alpine Space area.


Manifesto for circular economy

Circular Economy is an alternative strategy to the currently dominant economic take-use-dispose model that is exploiting finite natural resources, creating toxic waste mountains and garbage whirls in the oceans as well as polluting air, soil and water. Instead the Circular Economy is a framework for a sustainable economy that is designed to be restorative and regenerative. – Products and resources are kept in the economic cycle as long as possible by creating closed loops of material use. – Waste will be more and more designed out of the system and reduced. – Circular Economy products are developed, distributed and reprocessed by using re-generative resources and renewable energy. – Circular Economy products are durable and easy to repair, easy to reuse, easy to share, easy to refurbish and easy to recycle.


Methodological framework for CCLabs

THE4BEES project builds on the hypothesis: Energy is consumed by people rather than by buildings. To approach this hypothesis, the project focuses on behavioural change of users in public buildings. It is based on an inclusive collaborative approach traditionally addressed as open innovation. More specifically it introduces Co-creation labs, a form of labs evolving from the Living Labs methodology. CCLabs should be understood as an organizational form using the same principles and building upon the same methodological guidelines, but they differ one from another due to the different content and stakeholder reality, as well as the different groups they are addressing. The proposed methodological guidelines help the CCLabs to prepare their individual Action plan (CCLabs Plan D.3.1.2), where each co-creation reality is addressed more specifically. The Action plans serves as roadmaps for working with target groups and achieve project results.

LOS_DAMA! Compendium

Within LOS_DAMA! 7 cities, institutes and metropolitan regions developed and implemented local pilot projects in the following city regions: Munich, Salzburg, Vienna, Ljubljana, Trrento, Turin and Grenoble. A detailed description of the local activities is published in the LOS_DAMA! compendium and linked with the tools used for implementation. In addition overall challenges of enhancing Green Infrastructure in the Alpine Space are explained followed by the solutions of Project Partners in the different plannign contexts.


Book: Smart Specialisation Strategies with Smart Clusters – A New Approach to Generating Transformative Activities

The S3-4AlpClusters project aims at enhancing smart industrial transition in the regions of the Alpine Space by facilitating innovation through cluster initiatives and initiating interregional cooperation. Recent experiences show that the identification and development of transformative activities – i.e. the innovation capacities and actions that have the potential to lead to structural change – remain a significant challenge in the practical implementation of Smart Specialization Strategies (S3). This challenge is addressed in our new book, Smart Specialisation Strategies with Smart Clusters – A New Approach to Generating Transformative Activities. Reference: Bersier, J. and Keller, M. (Eds.). (2019). Smart Specialisation Strategies with Smart Clusters – A New Approach to Generating Transformative Activities. Interreg Alpine Space, S3-4AlpClusters Final Publication.
