Research project descritpion

Since the beginning of the EUSALP strategy, in January 2016, the UNIMONT Pole has supported the Lombardy Region in the leadership of the Action Group 1 whose goal is to develop an efficient ecosystem of Research & Innovation in the Alpine Region, interacting with National and Regional Institutions from 7 States and 48 Regions with the supervision of the DG Regio of the European Union. The EUSALP process has brought concrete benefits in the construction of strategic partnerships for participation in calls, as well as in the development of important tools for the promotion of the research ecosystem in the Alpine Region (eg Re-Search Alps platform and the tool for comparative analysis of S3).

Project objectives

The EU Strategy for the Alpine Region (EUSALP) is the fourth macro-regional strategy. The Strategy aims to promote sustainable economic and social prosperity of the Alpine Region and it will affect around 80 million people living 48 regions in 7 countries.


The basis of the Strategy’s governance has three inter-related levels: political leadership and ownership; coordination; and implementation. At each level, different actors from the participating States and Regions take part in a General Assembly, an Executive Board and implementing bodies. The core of the implementation level is the 9 Action Groups.


The Strategy is build upon three interdependent thematic objectives that focus on economic growth and innovation; mobility and connectivity; environment and energy and a cross-cutting objective aiming to build a macro-regional governance model. To support these objectives, the EUSALP Strategy focuses on nine actions priorities.


1st Thematic Policy Area: Economic Growth and Innovation

OBJECTIVE: “Fair access to job opportunities, building on the high competitiveness of the Region”

Three Action Groups operate within this Thematic Policy Area:

  • ACTION GROUP 1: to develop an effective research and innovation ecosystem
    Region: Lombardia
    Leader: Anna Giorgi
  • ACTION GROUP 2: to increase the economic potential of strategic sectors
    Region: Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes
    Leader: Sylvain Guetaz
  • ACTION GROUP 3: to improve the adequacy of labour market, education and training in strategic sectors
    Autonomous Province: Trento
    Leader: Boglarka Fenyvesi-Kiss

2nd Thematic Policy Area: Mobility and Connectivity

OBJECTIVE: “Sustainable internal and external accessibility to all”

Two Action Groups operate within the 2nd Thematic Policy Area:

  • ACTION GROUP 4: To promote inter-modality and interoperability in passenger and freight transport
    Region: EGTC: EUREGIO Tirolo Alto-Adige Trentino
    Leader: Ewald Moser, Patrick Skoniezki, Johanna Thöni
  • ACTION GROUP 5: To connect people electronically and promote accessibility to public services
    Region: Valle d’Aosta e Groupement Suisse pour les Régions de Montagne (SAB)
    Leader: Carlo Vigna, Thomas Egger

3rd Thematic Policy Area: Environment and Energy

OBJECTIVE: “A more inclusive environmental framework for all and renewable and reliable energy solutions for the future”

Four Action Groups operate within this Thematic Policy Area:

  • ACTION GROUP 6: To preserve and valorise natural resources, including water and cultural resources
    Region: Convenzione alpina e Carinzia
    Leader: Wolfger Mayrhofer, Helmut Serro, Lisa Ellemunter
  • ACTION GROUP 7: To develop ecological connectivity in the whole EUSALP territory
    Region: Baviera e Slovenia
    Leader: Michaela Künzl, Tina Trampuš
  • ACTION GROUP 8: To improve risk management and to better manage climate change, including major natural risks prevention
    Region: Austria e Baviera
    Leader: Christian Wanger, Florian Rudolf-Miklau
  • ACTION GROUP 9: To make the territory a model region for energy efficiency and renewable energy
    Region: Alto Adige, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes
    Leader: Ulrich Santa, Patrick Blard

Cross-cutting Policy Area: Governance, including Institutional Capacity

OBJECTIVE: “A sound macro-regional governance model for the Region (to improve cooperation and the coordination of action)”

A two-level coordination built upon national coordination and objective coordination is highly recommended.

  • At national level: National Coordinators
  • At macro-regional level
