SIMRA - Newsletter #3 - October 2017
Welcome to SIMRA's 3rd Newsletter!
SIMRA (Social Innovation in Marginalised Rural Areas) is a four-year project (2016-2020) funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Programme. It aims to advance understanding of social innovation and innovative governance in agriculture, forestry and rural development – and how to boost them – in marginalised rural areas across Europe and around the Mediterranean, including non-EU countries.
SIMRA’s newsletter is back. Next steps include launch of innovation actions and of case studies. The difference between both mainly lies in the degree of involvement of the SIMRA project. In the case studies, we collect and analyse empirical evidence of social innovations. In the Innovation Actions, we act as observers, facilitators and analysts of such social innovation.
So, stay tuned to learn more about interesting social innovation initiatives all over Europe and the Mediterranean area!
