Kick-Off Italian Presidency 2022

Meeting topic: 

The EU Strategy for the Alpine Region EUSALP, launched in 2015, aims at developing the Alpine region as an attractive, innovative, competitive and green region in the heart of Europe. The focus lies on economic growth and innovation, mobility and connectivity, as well as environmental protection and energy.  

After the successful French presidency, the autonomous provinces of Bolzano-South Tyrol and Trento will take over the presidency for Italy for the year 2022. Under the motto  “e di là uscimmo a riveder le stelle" (“and thence we came forth to see the stars again” - Inferno, XXXIV, 139 – Dante Alighieri) the annual programme will be marked by the post-pandemic recovery landscape, by the political, social, economic and technological transition in place to respond to global climate change and by the therefore essential innovative power of the numerous small, medium-sized and large centers in the EUSALP area.  

The Italian Presidency will be formally launched on
