What we strive for
BE-READI ALPS aims to define, test and model an Alpine Space innovative supporting system which valorises mutual competences, sets up bridges and cooperation channels, upgrades tools and soft skills with the goal to show through concrete pilots that an innovative approach is possible both to drive mature SMEs business model’s shift and to upscale the Alpine innovation ecosystem.
Main expected results
BE-READI ALPS aims to reshape at least 50 companies’ value chains, creating partnership with Alpine Space (AS) players such as financial investors, export managers, digital start-ups and R&D providers that could bring in investments or open up new possibilities for markets/products/processes.
The project will involve in the pilot 500 SMEs that will be supported in order to define a re-launching path. The goal is to demonstrate the impact of qualified AS trusted and skilled Points cooperating at transnational level using shared matching procedures, operative models and tools. The outputs, valorised and mainstreamed to be further exploited and sustained, will stimulate decision makers to launch strategic actions and joint operative agreements.
