Title

Survey on Smart Villages and Smart Regions in the Alpine area

18th Mar 2021

The Board of action group Leaders (BAGL) and the Executive Board (EB) of EUSALP chose the “Smart village” topic as one of five cross-sectoral topics within the project ALPGOV II. The larger background to this topic described in the concept note of the cross-sectoral initiative “Smart Village”. According the concept, the first activity is to “Establish an overview of existing Smart village and smart region initiatives in the Alpine area.” There are already quite a lot of activities for Smart Villages / Smart Cities / Smart Regions going on in the Alpine area. But an overview is missing. This is hindering an exchange between these initiatives. The goals of this activity are:
• to get a clearer picture on the already ongoing activities in the alpine area;
• to create a database of stakeholders for the further activities (e.g. Exchange of experience, building a network);
• to identify potential best practice case for the later communication work

The following report and overview is based on a desk research and a small survey within the ALPGOV-Partners and the Actions Groups involved in the cross-sectoral initiative “Smart villages”. The survey is certainly not complete and gives an overview of the actual state of play.
It will be amended, as soon as further information is available. The report es therefore marked as “work in progress”.
