Ruraland’s closing seminar will take place in Sevilla, Spain, next September 20-21.
All partners with their political representatives, stakeholders, technicians and experts having participated in the project as well as EU representatives and other project and networks (Rur@ct, Interact) are expected to participate in this event that will cloture three years of intense networking
Rural areas in Europe are affected by various problems encompassing depopulation, ageing population, a lack of non-agricultural employment, and a less competitive productive sector than in the urban areas. With the RURALAND project, 10 partners coming from 9 EU countries expressed their wish to promote innovative and competitive rural development policies. RURALAND is thus encouraging territorial competitiveness and supporting the economic diversification of rural areas by exchanging knowledge and identifying good practices.
