Programme description

Main objectives

The Alpine Space is composed of territories with contrasted demographic, social and economic trends and a great cultural and linguistic diversity. This diversity goes along with a great variety of governance systems and traditions. Both the common specificities of the Alpine Space and its variety and diversity call for cooperation. The Programme aims to boost research, technological development and innovation; contribute to support the shift towards a low-carbon economy in all sectors; protect the environment and promote resource efficiency ; enhance institutional capacity and an efficient public administration
