Sustainably valorise Alpine Space cultural and natural heritage

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


The Alpine Space Programme (ASP) can provide a framework for the exchange and interaction of organisations involved in the protection of natural and cultural heritage. It embraces the overall goal of strengthening a transnational identity and supports cooperation structures by developing adapted strategies, tools and models to this end.


The ASP aims to increase the consistent, balanced and sustainable use of the area’s cultural and natural heritage by increasing awareness on the present potential and future challenges and developing new solutions (e.g. adoption of governance tools, development of new production chains, conflict management tools etc). The results to be delivered by the projects reside initially in the fostering of a transnational Alpine identity using the transnational “label” as a catalyst (output: transnational cooperation structures and strategic elements).

Zentrale Zuwendungsvoraussetzungen

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).
