The Italy – Slovenia Cooperation Programme 2014-2020 will apply the approach outlined in Art. 36 of the EU Reg. 1303/2013.

PRIMIS - Multicultural journey between Italy and Slovenia through the prism of minorities

Sector: culture

The common challenge of the programme area to which the PRIMIS project will contribute is the "Conservation, protection and restoration of cultural and natural heritage".
The overall project objective is to enhance the value of the linguistic, cultural and natural heritage of the linguistic communities in the programme area in order to attract sustainable tourism. This area is by nature multicultural and multilingual, due to the presence of Slovenian and Italian national minorities and other language communities (Cimbrians, Ladins, Friulians) making it unique compared to other territories in Italy and Slovenia. The project will bring about a new perception of the multicultural and multilingual identity of the PA for both tourists and residents.

The main outputs are:

  • the creation of 4 Multimedia Centres for the dissemination of the specificities and peculiarities of the indigenous language communities;
  • a multimedia platform and a digital guide;
  • the enhancement and promotion of cultural events in the PA;
  • information and training activities for specific target groups.

The beneficiaries are:

  • tourists,
  • residents,
  • young people,
  • SMEs,
  • project partners.

The intended approach is to transfer the multicultural and multilingual peculiarities of the indigenous communities to the tourism sector and the promotion of the cross-border territory through the use of innovative, interactive and multimedia tools with immersive and virtual reality in the Multimedia Centres. The approach will go beyond the current practices of the sector (sea-mountain) because it will help to create tourism products based on the cultural and linguistic heritage of the PA. Cross-border cooperation is necessary because it brings together the diversities and peculiarities linked to multiculturalism and multilingualism to create a unique image of the PA.

The project is original because it considers the material and immaterial cultural heritage of the indigenous language communities as an added value for an economic activity - cultural and sustainable tourism.

MARLESS - MARine Litter cross-border awarenESS and innovation actions

Sector: environment/energy

The general objective of the project is to implement concrete and joint interventions that allow to address the phenomenon of marine Litter from different points of view and methods of intervention. The project therefore puts into effect concrete actions of monitoring, management, prevention and removal of the marine litter without neglecting the normative aspect within which these actions are framed. Finally, it proposes innovative and experimental actions aimed at treating plastic waste in a circular economy perspective.

The MARLESS project intends to tackle the problem of Marine Litter in the Adriatic Sea from many fronts in order to obtain visible and concrete results. Numerous in fact are the factors that intervene in the creation of Marine Litter, plastics coming from the inland, plastics from the touristic sector or aquaculture. The project then addresses the problem in a holistic way and develops over 6 WPs aimed at attacking the problem on all fronts, involving all the direct or indirect responsible actors of the Marine Litter, which together can represent the solution to the problem. The project is divided into:

Monitoring actions aimed at comparing the partners on the methodologies used in the Marine Strategy on their own territories and at implementing a profitable mix of good practices as well as enhancing the actions already implemented.

Governace and raising awareness actions aimed at carrying forward citizen engagement interventions both in schools, in the tourism sector and in a more holistic and integrated perspective of the Costa Contract;

Integrated regulatory management actions aimed at identifying the nodes where the application of different regulations intersects and causes bottlenecks that hinder the effectiveness of the interventions

Pilot actions which aim to test experimental actions whose outcomes will then be collected in toolboxes for the benefit of all partners who can then transfer them to their own territories.
