Dear Partners and Friends of the Alps-Adriatic-Alliance!

LH Dr Kaiser 1

In my position as Chairman of the Alps-Adriatic-Council I have the pleasure to welcome you to our Alliance´s new website!

Almost exactly a year ago the Alps-Adriatic-Alliance was founded and we can proudly look back to a very respectable number of approved projects and patronages in fields such as tourism, sports, culture, mobility, inclusion, higher education, culture as well as agriculture & ethnic heritage.

The humanitarian help provided for the flood-victims in the Croatian Counties Vukovar-Srijem and Brod-Posavina was a joint act of humanity and solidarity which impressively demonstrates one of our Alliance´s core values.

The Alps-Adriatic-Alliance represents a completely new, dynamic, flexible and low-threshold network-structure for project-oriented cooperation in the Alps-Adriatic area which is open to all potential public and private stakeholders. Please consider this website an open invitation to join and enrich this Alps-Adriatic-network

Let me therefore take the opportunity to wish you all Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Dr. Peter Kaiser
Governor of Carinthia
Chairman of the Alps-Adriatic-Council

EUROPEAN PROJECTS AWARDS

On the occasion of the OPEN DAYS 2014 – the 12th European Week of Regions and Cities – which took place in Brussels from the 6th to the 9th of October 2014, Carinthia´s Governor and current Chairman of the Alps-Adriatic-Council Dr. Peter Kaiser was awarded with the “European Projects Award”.

The renowned European Projects Association (EPA) granted the award for Governor Kaiser´s personal achievements for the European Union and the whole European Society.

“I see this award as a confirmation of our work in Carinthia. We all need the European Union to maintain peace on our continent. We need the EU also in order to guarantee economic growth, to maintain and create jobs and to survive in a globalized world”, said Governor Kaiser in his acceptance speech at the European Parliament.

EUROPEAN PROJECTS AWARDS

On the 8th of October 2014 Carinthia´s Governor Peter Kaiser hosted the OPEN DAYS-side event “Alps-Adriatic Area – Strengthening integration through regional cooperation” in Brussels.

Together with President Debora Serrachiani from the Autonomus Region of Friuli Venezia Giulia, Valter Flego, president of Istria, Regional Minister Roberto Ciambetti from Veneto, Jasna Gabrič, Deputy Mayor of Trbovlje (Slovenia), Erich Korzinek, the director of the Styrian Brussels Office and Helena Matuša, Deputy Director of the Development Agency of the Croatian County Krapina-Zagorje the strength of our area as a crystallization point of European integration was impressively underlined.

In his function as current Chairman of the Alps-Adriatic-Council Governor Kaiser stated: “Many challenges that we face today cannot be solved effectively by individual regions alone. Our interest is to find common solutions in the fields of transport, environment, energy and infrastructure policy, the joint marketing of regional products or the positioning of the Alps-Adriatic area in the global competition. All these issues can only be tackled together with our neighboring regions.”
