Welcome to COMUNIS

In the Alps, strategies of commercial development on the municipal level have predominantly been characterized by reacting to single cases in the short-term. A coordinated and concerted strategy using the regional and local potentials is missing.

COMUNIS aims at developing a well-defined integrative and cooperative strategy for Commercial Location Development (CLD) and enhancing inter-municipal and intra-territorial cooperation to overcome individualistic attempts of problem solution on the level of single municipalities.

COMUNIS will provide broadly adaptable guidelines to apply this strategy and offer practical instruments for the assessment of the local and regional demand for and the steering of commercial development.

COMUNIS will particularly focus on diversification and efficiency of economic activities, environmental and social concerns as well as human and cultural capital. The project will result in a transnational knowledge management and establish sustainable structures for managing CLD in the pilot regions.
