About the project
In the Alps, de-industrialization is leaving behind former productive landscapes of impressive size and complexity: Alpine Industrial Landscapes (AILs). Between 2018 and 2021, ten project partners generated significant knowledge about these brownfields, developing and testing sustainable transformation strategies. The multidisciplinary approach of trAILs combined expertise in spatial and landscape planning, socio-economic sciences and ecologic restoration while cooperating with local communities in Austria, Italy, France and Slovenia. trAILs wants to support local and regional stakeholders in the complex process of sustainable brownfield transformation.

The program of the symposium
At the symposium, starting on Monday, March 1st at 1:30 pm (via ZOOM), the specific approach of the trAILs project will be presented and discussed with experts and project partners from renowned European research and planning institutions. The aim is to share knowledge and experiences in order to deepen the understanding for the challenge of transforming industrial areas, embedded in the unique landscape of the Alps.
