Expanding your network also over administrative borders can offer new insights and give new ideas. The idea of “functional areas” as described in of the recommendations on [[Governance and participatory planning]] ​is indicating which institutions and persons in other regions are working in the same fields or facing the same challenges. For example a functional area could be a cross-border labour market. This would require a cross-border transport policy and a common public transport – at least a harmonized schedule of lines ending at the border. ​+As a policy / decision maker you are already involved in a network (in your political party, with other policy makers on different spatial levels) be it with focus on the Alps or not.
