Action Group 2

To increase the economic potential of strategic sectors

Mission

Auvergne Rhône-Alpes chairs Action Group 2.

Action Group 2 ("To increase the economic potential of strategic sectors") aims at identifying key Alpine economic sectors which would benefit from action at macro-regional level, and to implement concrete measures to improve their economic and social environment. The added value comprises a better use of Alpine specific resources and potentials in the identified strategic sectors with focus on the improvement of framework conditions and opportunities for SMEs.

1st Thematic Policy Area
"Economic Growth and Innovation"

Specific Objectives

The main objectives of Action Group 2 are:

  • to develop new or better value chains inside sectors regarded as strategic in the Alpine Region which show potential with distinctive conditions in the region
  • to bridge the gap of disconnected value chains or parts of it
  • to move higher up value chains or adjusting products and services to the green economy
  • to bridge different policies and efforts in order to stimulate the transformation of the industrial structure and drive job creation and growth
  • to support innovation by making better use of cluster initiatives

So far, Action Group 2 has identified four thematic priorities (Sub-Groups):

  • Bioeconomy/Cluster development (coordinated by Baden-Württemberg, DE)
  • Wood (coordinated by Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, FR)
  • Health Tourism (coordinated by the Region of Salzburg, AT)
  • Digital Industry (coordinated by the Autonomous Province of Trento, IT)
