Project type: RS (Research and Technological Development Project)
Starting date: 01-02-2000
Duration: 36 months
Total cost: 1,980,000 EUR
EC Contribution: 990,000 EUR
Scientific Officer: Norbert WINKLER
Research topic: 5.4. Support for common policies (Common Agricultural/Fisheries Policy)

Abstract:
This research proposal will assist integration of the first 'wave' of CEEC's rural areas into the EU by:

1) identifying optimum rural development measures and supporting institutional structures, and drawing policy recommendations for the CEEC that reflect their specific conditions;
2) identifying key factors shaping farm diversification in CEEC rural areas development purposes;
3) developing a simulation model for the CEEC that allows estimation of the impact of alternative policy scenarios on production, consumption, net trade, income and budgets costs;
4) enhancing co-operation between EU and CEEC researchers and transfer of know-how to the CEEC.

In the first two years research will be conducted on areas a-c. The final year will be used to integrate results by country and to draw conclusions for the CAP and EU rural development policy.
