The strategic project ALCOTRA INNOVAZIONE is meant to create and develop awareness and partnership, among innovation players of the cross-border areas in the continental Alpine border between Italy and France. This is taking place within the development model of Living Labs. The project main goal is developing 4 cross-border living labs, in the domains of Intelligent Mobility, Smart Energies, Creative Industries and E-Health.
On October the 3rd, 2011, the project partners from Piemonte – Region Piemonte and Provincia di Torino – supported by CSP-Innovazione nelle ICT, have launched the 4 thematic working groups, whose outcomes will merge with the other international partner working groups, in order to set-up the cross border living labs.
The final project output, forecast after 36 months of cooperation in mid 2013, will be a Cross Border Strategic Plan to foster innovation.
