Smart Villages

Meeting topic: 

Within the events scheduled for the French Presidency of EUSALP, the association ADRETS organizes an event to bring together politicians, project managers, researchers, associations and all those people who are involved or interested in the topic of Smart Villages.

The meeting will be held in a two-days format : a Day 1 consisting in an exploratory visit across the French Regional Natural Park of Vercors, to encounter some Smart Villages Pilot activities, and a Day 2 dedicated to an European Meeting to be held in the Isère Department County Hall, in Grenoble.

During these two-days, participants will be invited to consider the development of Smart Villages initiatives as a key opportunity for the development of a sustainable and attractive Alpine region. During the event the best practices, projects and ideas related to this emerging theme will be presented. Smart Villages is an innovative perspective to provide better services and to give potential for an ecological transition to better live, work and inhabit the Alpine region in the future.

This event is organized by the ADRETS association, with the technical support of the Isère Department, within activities of the INTERREG Alpine Space project "Smart Villages", and in strong collaboration with the French presidency of EUSALP composed by : the Regions Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, Provence-Alpes Côte d'Azur and Bourgogne-Franche-Comté and also the French National Agency for Territorial Cohesion.
