The Directorate-General for trade, Tourism and services of the Lombardy Region is the Italian lead institution taking part in the Alpine space project InnoCité, making good use of scientific and technical support supplied by IREALP. The project started in October 2008 and will end in June 2011.

Objective of the project. How can we increase the competitiveness of small/medium sized towns affected by the influence of large urban centres of Alpine area? The InnoCité project intends to respond to this central question, in particular through the proposition and the "field testing" of a series of tools for local representatives for public and economic policies. These instruments will be accompanied by the introduction of participatory methods which will integrate different decision makers and managers (political, economic, administrative, urban planners, etc..) in a public-private partnership.
