Welcome to Nena

NENA intends to build an Alpine-wide network of SMEs. The exchange of know-how, the initiation of co-operations, the offer of training as well as image enhancing measures for SMEs are the tasks of this network. NENA will contribute to a better use of existing co-operation potentials by mobilising synergies within and between the different economic sectors.

NENA is concentrating on two core fields:

  1. „Renewable Resources“ with the clusters “Value added chain of wood”; “Energy from renewable resources”; “Saving energy – passive house”
  2. Crossing Functions “Innovation and Technology”: Innovation management; Education and training; Process optimisation and certification; Interface management

Value added chain of wood

Production of energy from renewable resources

Innovation Management

Saving Energy

Education and training

Interface Management

Process optimisation and certification

The network will support sustainable development while taking the social, ecological and economic aspects into account. By strengthening clusters and co-operations between urban and rural areas NENA helps to attenuate the increasing polarisation between strong urban areas and less favoured regions.
