Title

Alpine Region Preparatory Action Fund - ARPAF

9th Dec 2019

The Alpine Region Preparatory Action Fund (ARPAF) is a preparatory action created on the initiative of the European Parliament to promote the success of the EUSALP. ARPAF supports EUSALP Action Groups in implementing their work plans and establishing economic and social cooperation in the Alpine macro-region.
Out of the 2017 budget of the European Parliament, 2 Million Euros were allocated to ARPAF, which allowed the EUSALP Action Groups to implement 6 projects (ARPAF I) over a period of 2 years. In 2018, an additional 1 Million Euros were provided to fund 5 short-term ARPAF projects (ARPAF II), which will be implemented until early 2021.
The projects contribute to the objectives of the Alpine strategy, covering different thematic fields such as environment, sustainable mobility, circular economy and the issue of depopulation.
