FRACTAL – FosteRing green infrAstruCTure in the ALps

Project coordinator: Free University of Bolzano-Bozen

Coordinator for NIB: dr. Danilo Bevk

Code: Interreg Alpine Space

Duration: 2023 - 2024


The Alps are characterized by a variety of natural, agricultural, and small urban areas, where the connectivity between natural and semi-natural ecosystems is not always ensured. One of the most effective ways to support ecosystem services is implementing Green Infrastructure (GI) at local scale, but they are still scattered in rural and peri-urban areas. Building on the solutions developed by the LUIGI project, FRACTAL involves local stakeholders in the implementation of green infrastructure. The goal is to standardize the requirements to plan GI at municipality level, as well as to develop an education toolkit in order to raise awareness among citizens and pupils.

Project Total Budget: € 445,786.00 (ERFD funding € 334,339.50).
