Project Advancements

POLY5 project had a basic question: “Can a major transport infrastructure become a local development opportunity for Alpine areas”? 

POLY5 project, moving from the cognitive framework developed to plan large scale transport infrastructure and integrate it in fragile territories,  has built a series of tools to support this approach.

POLY5 elaborated tools related to the planning, building and management phase of an infrastructure life-cycle. This activity led to the definition of a masterplan, made of single tools, for the integration of major infrastructures into local territories.

POLY5 has now reached its first important goal: a cognitive framework to plan large scale transport infrastructure with specific reference on how to appraise the value of a territory with and without an infrastructure, and on how to build strategies and visions in Alpine areas. 

POLY5 project is currently focusing on the definition of a so-called cognitive framework which aims to describe not only the actual situation of the cooperation area, in terms of its geographical, social and economic aspects (knowledge base), but also to draw possible futures for areas affected by the presence of major transport infrastructure (strategies, scenarios and visions)

Poly5 project partners are currently engaged in the discussion around the general assumption that the provision and realization of major transport infrastructures generates deep impacts on the interested territories which imply to address highly problematic decisions and processes that occur before, during and after these realizations.

After the project preparation phase, which lasted for one year, form August 2010, POLY5 project officially started on the 1st of September 2011.
