The working group Alpen-Adria or ARGE Alpe-Adria for short was founded in 1978 as an international organization for cultural , political and economic cooperation between the countries bordering the Alps and the Adriatic .

The members of the working group are the following eleven regions: the Austrian federal states of Burgenland , Carinthia , Upper Austria and Styria , the Italian regions Lombardy , Veneto , Friuli-Venezia Giulia , the Hungarian administrative districts (counties) Baranya and Vas as well as the republics Slovenia and Croatia .

The main areas of cooperation are:

Since it was founded in Venice in 1978 , the consortium has achieved significant results in all areas. Since the enlargement of the European Union in 2004, the organization has become a central institution in the integration of the affected region. There is a special collaboration with the ARGE Alp der Alpenländer. With a resolution adopted unanimously in 2008, it was decided to expand the agendas of the working group to the Alps-Adriatic- Pannonia area ( Pamhagen declaration ). In particular, the cooperation with the ARGE Donauländer is to be intensified in this regard .

The organization is based in Klagenfurt . Central institutions of the community are the Commission of Senior Officials and an annual general meeting of the eleven heads of government . The current Secretary General is Wolfgang Platzer.

The Alps-Adriatic Alliance was re-established on November 22, 2013 in Klagenfurt am Wörthersee (Carinthia). It represents a completely new network structure for project-oriented cooperation in the Alps-Adriatic region and thus replaces the Alps-Adriatic working group.
