The Interreg Alpine Space is pleased to launch an open call for the 2021-22 Small Scale Projects to exploit the untapped potentials and challenges across the Alpine regions.
Small-scale projects may also result in capitalisation actions to bring and “roll-out” available tools and solutions into boosting their implementation and use in the territories. Such measures aim at widely promoting the up-take of project achievements among target groups for greater impact and added-value both at local and regional level. These actions predominantly focus on mature fields of cooperation where a body of knowledge is already available and tested by stakeholders. Such follow and spin-off activities are also opportunities to explore complementarities with other projects and initiatives.
As the programme aims to encourage new experimentation, small-scale projects will be also a laboratory for new ideas, which draws on experience from a variety of disciplines. Regardless of the approach to cooperation, projects need to demonstrate tangible and realistic outputs.
- Climate resilient and green alpine region.
- Carbon neutral and resource sensitive alpine region
- Innovation and digitalisation supporting a green alpine region
- Cooperatively managed and developed alpine region
- The total financial size of each project shall range between EUR 250.000 and 750.000;
- The duration of small-scale projects shall range between 12 and 18 months;
- The Interreg Alpine Space programme welcomes the participation of organisations from both the public and private sector that bring added-value to the implementation of projects. These organisations may participate as PPs but may also contribute as observers or external experts. In the following different roles and its prerequisites are laid down.
- Project partners (PPs) are organisations that are directly participating in the preparation and implementation of an Alpine Space project and are officially listed in the application form (AF) of the project.
