LEADER has been used as a bottom-up local development tool in rural areas for over twenty years. It can now contribute to the development of communities in all types of areas across the EU under the instrument of Community-Led Local Development (CLLD). Come and discuss with us what the LEADER/CLLD method has achieved so far and where it will go next. The workshop will take place on 11 October (code 11C117).
Digitisation can also positively influence economic added value within rural/suburban areas, with an overall impact on the local economy. EU funding is vital to support this transformative technology by cancelling out disadvantages while at the same time creating new opportunities to compete. Join the workshop 11C74 to find out how European regions can contribute to the successful roll-out of the digital agenda in Europe.
