The Alps as a wellness region - New EU project

January 2005 saw the launch of the Alpshealthcomp Project aimed at strengthening the competitiveness of the alpine region as a health and wellness destination. The partners of Alpshealthcomp, a project of the EU Community Initiative Interreg IIIB Alpine Space Programme, come from Italy, Austria and Germany, the project itself being endowed with around one million euros.
The three-year programme is to focus on, among other aspects, research into alpine-specific medical effects, the quality management of alpine wellness and health package offers, and initiatives in cross-national training and further training. Particular attention is to be paid to such natural resources as altitude, water, moors, medicinal herbs, whey, hay, apple extracts, etc., in striving to establish scientifically the health impact of typically alpine health offers. Initial results from the project are expected in the course of 2006.
