The European Union Strategy for the Alpine Region (EUSALP) brings together seven countries and almost 50 regions. For these countries, the Alps, including their foothills and lowland areas, are both a distinct advantage and a particular challenge.
Action Group 5 - Connectivity and Accessibility
The focus of this action is twofold. On the one hand to draw up a comprehensive strategy for guiding and shaping the ongoing process of digitisation in the Alpine Region and on the other hand the accessibility to services which are provided by public authorities to people living within a certain area. This can be achieved by making the best use of new available technologies as well as developing take-up of e-services.

Important works on Smart Villages have already been carried out, e.g. in the Alpine Space Programme project 2018-2021. Now it is time to build on these experiences and to spread the knowledge to the widest possible range of mountain and rural villages and regions.
What is next? Building up a strong alpine Smart Villages Community, because synergies are the key to evolution. This new Network will be launched at the DAC 2021.
