2011 - 2014


Content and Objectives
Alps4EU is a European project funded by the INTERREG IVB Alpine Space Programme with 13 project partners from 6 Alpine countries (Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Slovenia and Switzerland). The objective of the project is to strengthen cross-border cooperation between clusters in the key sectors of Renewable Energies, Mechatronics, New Materials and IT.
The regional clusters are linked to each other by establishing international structures with meta-clusters. This should encourage knowledge transfer between the different Alpine regions, therefore increasing the competitiveness of the participating companies and research institutes. The strategic objectives of each cluster in the Alpine space are analysed and recommendations given to improve the political framework. More information at www.alps4eu.eu
