Seminar: Leader in the New Member States - Rural development through Leader.

13 – 17 November 2006, Tihany, Lake Balaton / Hungary.

Organised by the Leader+ Observatory, this seminar addressed the topic “Leader in the New Member States” to the Local Action Groups (LAGs) who have already been officially selected in the new Member States, and also those in the process of selection as well as non-Leader LAGs. The seminar provided a first platform of exchange for Leader actors in the new and old Member States.
