Establish transnationally integrated low carbon policy instruments

EFRE (ETZ B, transnational)

Baden-Württemberg Bayern

Die nachfolgenden Inhalte stammen aus dem Kooperationsprogramm "Alpine Space programme" (genehmigt am: 17.12.2014).


Projects in the past addressed low carbon policy instruments developing best practice platforms and decision support tools, databases and guidelines for renewable energies and sustainable power systems. The actions (2014-2020) can build on them and offer the opportunity to deepen and widen the scope of the projects, to involve new sectors, beneficiaries and actors.


The Alpine Space Programme (ASP) aims to establish low carbon policy instruments in the area with practical responses to the specific needs and challenges, spatial development policies, strategies and processes through the combination of available or potential technological and operational innovations and tools in low carbon systems.

non-repayable grant


Actions are assigned to Programme-Part "Low Carbon Alpine Space"


Indicative Actions to be supported are:

  • Set up transnational frameworks, platforms and networks for the identification of existing research initiatives (e.g. from Joint Research Centre - JRC), innovation resources, developments in the field of relevant KET, potentials and obstacles in the fields of low-carbon economy (mapping of resources, studies, pilots and strategies on research and application needs, market and product development potentials, prerequisites and “soft” factors for implementation etc.).
  • Develop research to business networks and cooperation structures on relevant issues for capitalisation and/or generation of Alpine Space low-carbon applications and technologies (conversion to a post-carbon energy system through energy saving, energy efficiency, decentralised energy grids based on renewable resources, energy saving settlement patterns and public transport etc.).
  • Develop policy networks, strategies, models and toolboxes (e.g. in relation to the implementation of relevant legal obligations such as Directive 2008/50/EC and the Clean Air Policy Package, creation of an Alpine Space climate footprint system, “carbon proofing” tools for integrated spatial development policies, sustainable urban mobility plans, strategies and processes etc.) for setting up local/regional low carbon model areas and regions including special needs areas such as nature protection regions.
  • Set up networks for the ex-ante assessment of the maturity and the anticipated impacts and the monitoring of the outcomes of low carbon policies, technologies and applications. Foster the promotion of debate among stakeholders, governance and citizens, the generation of creative ideas and the provision of capacity development mechanisms.
  • Set up, test and implement negotiation, mediation, participation and conflict resolution models and standards for the adoption and implementation of low-carbon policies, technologies and applications.

Zentrale Zuwendungsvoraussetzungen

Wichtige weitere Informationen zu Zuwendungsvoraussetzungen, wie z. B. die Mindestanzahl an Projektpartnern, finden Sie in den zugehörigen Unterlagen (siehe Link zu Downloads/Infos in der Kategorie Dokumente).


Projects will normally be selected in a two-step application procedure following calls for project proposals. Calls shall be launched regularly. Terms of reference (ToR) will be published for each call in which programme rules and expectations are set out. The application process will be carried out completely in an online system. Only applications being pre-selected by the Programme committee (PC) in step 1 of the application procedure (“expression of interest – EoI”) will be invited to submit a complete application form (AF) (step 2). In certain cases, e.g. for targeted calls for proposals with specific ToR, the programme may launch a one-step application procedure.


Assessment and selection: The Partner States ensure a clear, transparent and traceable evaluation by the Joint Secretariat (JS) and selection of projects by the PC. The criteria and details on the evaluation process (set out in the project implementation handbook) will be made available in the application documents.


The selection of projects will be carried out following a standardised assessment procedure (Article 12 of Regulation (EU) No 1299/2013). The objectives to be achieved are:

  • Assess the relevance of a project proposal;
  • Assess the feasibility of a project proposal;
  • Define a transparent and objective basis for decision making on a proposal rejection or approval;
  • Provide a base for communication and improvement among programme bodies and applicants. 


The detailed assessment criteria will be laid down and made available to project applicants in the project implementation handbook (PIH).
