Organising local partnerships
"Innovation in rural areas"
This technical document is the result of three successive activities organised by the LEADER European Observatory in 1996:
1. The completion of case studies on 7 areas in Europe where local partnership practices are under way, either in the context of the LEADER programme or another local initiative. The areas in question are:
2. The organisation of a seminar entitled "Local partners for innovation", which was held in the Vinschgau/Val Venosta area (Italy) from 23 to 27 October 1996 with participants from 9 European countries, mostly involved in the management of LEADER programmes.
3. Analysis of the discussions and conclusions of this seminar.
All of these activities lie within the more general working plan of the LEADER European Observatory, whose objectives include supporting the transfer of innovation in rural areas.
