Research topic: 5.5. Sustainable development of rural and other relevant areas

Abstract:
The overall project objective is to investigate the inter-relation between regional development and cultural (manmade) landscape change. In a future oriented approach, the team will propose improvements and adjustments to policies on EU and national level. The proposals are based on this new understanding in order to meet future requirements and to manage a balanced change in the Alps and other European landscapes and regions. The project will be carried out in close inter- and transdisciplinary co-operation between the research team, local actors in the pilot regions selected and EU and national governmental bodies concerned. The results will be transferred to other European regions through a permanent process of experience exchange.

Objectives:
The project also aims to combine a top-down and a bottom-up approach by co-operating with local actors in six to ten selected pilot regions, as well as with governmental bodies concerned on EU and national level. Another objective is to transfer the experiences gained in the project to other European regions through a permanent process of exchange.
