Action Group 5 - Connectivity and Accessibility

How to make the best use of new technologies in the alpine area? How to spread general services in rural areas? How to fill the gap due to the barriers between different places? Digitalization through Connectivity and digital services can be the answer.   Action Group 5 is giving an answer by creating enabling conditions, a governance mechanism, and common policies under the framework of EUSALP.
Action Group 5 work, co-led by the Autonomous Region of Aosta Valley and the Swiss Centre for the Alpine region, works through two different subgroups, one working on digitalization applied to connectivity and the other on services of general interest. 
All these initiatives concretely demonstrate that digitalization is not an end but a means to help people develop new services and bridge the gaps created by borders.  With EUSALP it will be possible to enable people and communities to become smart, making the Alps the forerunner of digitalization.
