Tutoring and support local SMEs to seize the opportunities offered by the implementation of the Turin-Lyon new high speed railway link

Implementing partner: Province of Turin

Geographical area: Susa Valley, Province of Turin (Italy)

Aim of the Pilot Action
The presence of construction sites spread over the territory of the Susa Valley generates job and income opportunities as well as the demand for goods and services. The aim of the pilot action is to develop and test a methodology enabling companies, enterprises and workers to catch these opportunities when operating on the territories interested by the construction sites of a major work such as the Lyon-Turin new railway link.
The specific objective is to give practical effect to the purposes indicated in the Regional Law n. 4 of 2011 – “Promotion of measures in favor of the territories concerned by the implementation of major infrastructure projects. Construction sites -Development-Territory”.
The Piedmont Region law, the first of its kind in Italy, has the main goal of preparing local communities to adapt to the presence of major construction projects so that they can maximize the related economic and social benefits matching national and European Union (involved in the realization of strategic infrastructure) with local interests. In particular, by fostering local employment, raining and upgrading of workers and encouraging initiatives in favor of economic and productive activities.

Achievements/Results
The Pilot Action focused on the definition of workforce needed, in terms of professional roles, skills and competences, primarily to be sought on the territory of the Susa Valley and the Province of Turin, matching them with what is actually available on the territory: it is expected to employ 45-55% of local workers and firms compared to the total required by the construction sites.
Through a direct confrontation with the local socio-economic system, it was possible to discuss the overall impacts generated by the presence of the construction sites and the related needs.
Among these, the necessity of specific funding measures and financial instruments has emerged. The Italian Government and the Piedmont Region have already destined 10 million euros for enterprises and municipalities of the Susa Valley and the Pilot Action provides recommendations and suggestions to establish criteria and procedures for the management of these funds, defining objectives, priorities and intervention tools.
Another aspect emerged, is the relevance of a defined system of trade union and labor relationships, in order to tackle issues such as procedures for the recruitment of workers, safety and health measures, procurement and sub-contracting to local firms. The Pilot Action thus provides a quantitative and qualitative census of enterprises operating in the area, defining accompanying and tutoring measures and a functional analysis aimed at strengthening the training system.

Outputs
The pilot action will produce:

  • two public calls issued by the Piedmont Region, addressed to enterprises active on the territories of the Susa Valley, considered “area of primary interest” in relation to the location of the major construction sites;
  • collective and protocol agreements for the regulation of labor relations between the contractors and the representative organizations of workers;
  • feasibility study on opportunities and territorial positive impacts that the Lyon-Turin new railway link generate for the competitiveness enhancement of the Susa Valley economy The output is designed mainly for regional and local decisionmakers (Municipalities, Province of Turin, Piedmont Region), small and medium enterprises, trade unions and in general to agencies and entities associated with these target groups.
