SIMRA is pleased to announce its first local workshop in Teruel, Spain!

The Horizon 2020 project SIMRA (Social Innovation in Marginalised Rural Areas), in which Euromontana is a partner, aims to categorise and understand social innovation in different settings (thanks to case studies), to develop an integrated set of methods for the evaluation of social innovation and its impact on rural areas, to analyse the success factors for social innovation and disseminate new knowledge to policy-makers.

One of SIMRA’s  means to achieve its objectives will be to identify and promote embryos of social innovation initiatives in selected regions (IT-Veneto, UK-Lancashire, NW-Lillehammer, Lebanon, ES-Catalonia and Aragón). SIMRA partners working on these regions will act as innovative actions implementers, will promote these social innovation embryos through facilitating and coaching the social innovation implementation. This foresees meetings with local stakeholders, training of local actors who implement the social innovations, the co-development of a social innovation feasibility plan.

The 1rst SIMRA local innovative action workshop will be organised by one of the Spanish partners of the project – the European Forest Institute (EFI) – in Teruel, Spain, on the 1rst of April. The theme of the workshop is “Guardians of the territory. Social innovation in rural areas”. The aim is to discuss existing local social innovation initiatives and to build a strategy with local stakeholders to make the best use of SIMRA through a concrete Innovative Action.

For more information, you can visit SIMRA’s website here or access the programme of the event here (in Spanish).
