Smart Villages - A common perspective through different visions

Meeting topic: 

Background Information

Within the events scheduled for the year of the Italian Presidency of EUSALP, Regione autonoma Valle d'Aosta organizes an event to bring together politicians, researchers, project managers, associations and all those people who are involved on the thematic of Smart Villages.

The conference will be held in the prestigious locations of the Skyway Monte Bianco and Courmayeur.

Starting from the ESPON study Alps 2050, particular attention will be paid to the development of the Smart Village concept as a possible way to find a solution to the depopulation of the Alpine villages. During the event will be presented best practices, projects and ideas related to the emerging theme of Smart Villages as an innovative perspective to provide better services and improve the quality of life in Alpine villages.

Action Group 5 main focus are the development of the connectivity and the provision of services of general interest (SGI) in the Alps. Those are a possible starting point for the Smart Village approach, and during the event to further develop the theme we will work with other AGs, in particular AG3 (dual education), AG4 (mobility) and AG9 (energy efficiency).
