From strategy to action: project selection
"Innovation in rural areas"
This file is the result of consecutive activities organised by the LEADER European Observatory:
1. The preparation and realisation of case studies in 7 European areas, focusing on the selection of projects in the context of LEADER I and in the current context of LEADER II. These LEADER areas are:
2. A seminar entitled "Selecting local projects", which was held in Grevena (Kozani LEADER area) from 5 to 11 May 1997 with participants from five countries.
3. An analysis of the discussions and conclusions of the seminar. A few additional examples were analysed, notably South Devon & Dartmoor (England, United Kingdom), Canal de Castilla (Castile-Leon, Spain) and Guadiato (Andalusia, Spain).
All of these activities fall within the context of the more general work of the LEADER European Observatory; one of its missions being to support the transfer of innovations to rural areas.
This file was written by Samuel Thirion (INDE, Portugal) and Gilda Farrell (LEADER European Observatory), in association with Paul Soto (Iniciativas Economicas, Spain). Preparation of the seminar and case studies was coordinated by Samuel Thirion, with the help of Pierre Campagne (IAM, Montpellier), Carlo Ricci (Agriteknica, Italy), Michael Mernagh (Wexford LEADER, Ireland), Stavriani Koutsou (University of Thessaloniki, Greece), Alessandra Pesce (INEA, Italy), Lorenzo Barbera (CRESM, Italy) and Maria-Christina Makrandréou (LEADER European Observatory). Yves Champetier and Jean-Luc Janot (LEADER European Observatory) helped in the final stages of this document. Christine Charlier (LEADER European Observatory) was in charge of production coordination.
