The Alpine Space programme is a European transnational cooperation programme for the Alpine region. It provides a framework to facilitate the cooperation between economic, social and environmental key players in seven Alpine countries, as well as between various institutional levels such as: academia, administration, business and innovation sector, and policy making.
Four of these thematic fields, called priorities, have been identified for the 2014–2020 period:
Priority 1: Innovative Alpine Space
Priority 2: Low Carbon Alpine Space
Priority 3: Liveable Alpine Space
Priority 4: Well-Governed Alpine Space
The cooperation area of the Alpine Space programme covers the Alps and their surrounding lowlands, connecting very distinct regions, such as the French Rhone Valley with the Slovenian Adriatic coast, and the metropolitan area of Milan with the Bavarian foothills.
The programming process for the Alpine Space programme 2021-2027 has officially started.
