From eight different alpine regions, eleven partners from Germany, Italy, Austria, France, Slovenia and Switzerland are involved. The 3-year project concludes in December 2018. The final conference was held on 18th October 2018 in Munich, organised by project partner Chamber of Commerce and Industry for Munich and Upper Bavaria.
