Smart digital transformation of villages in the Alpine Space

Methods & Approaches

For each Test Area will be formed Regional Stakeholder Groups (RSGs) involving policy makers, academia, business and civil society.

The RSGs

  • Assist the assessment of smartness level of Test Areas
  • Give input for best practices and test the Digital Exchange Platform (DEP)
  • Codesign the Toolbox
  • Facilitate the transfer of project results to the policy level


The different RSGs are interlinked via the Digital Exchange Platform enabling a favorable framework for innovation. The DEP guarantees the transnational knowledge sharing of the project findings within the project as well as with the wider public. The toolbox provides access to digital tools, methods and techniques that facilitate user engagement and the development of products with high value for the Smart Village ecosystem in all Test Areas.
