Sustainable Hub to Engage into Rural Policies with Actors (SHERPA) is a four-year project (2019-2023) with 17 partners funded by the Horizon 2020 programme. It aims to gather knowledge that contributes to the formulation of recommendations for future policies relevant to EU rural areas, by creating a science-society-policy interface which provides a hub for knowledge and policy.
In 2020, the European Commission initiated the preparation of a new long-term vision for rural areas. SHERPA prepared a contribution to the process by feeding in the views of science-society-policy actors: between April and October 2020, SHERPA Multi-Actor Platforms (MAPs) investigated challenges and opportunities and discussed a vision for their territory through to 2040.
The results will be presented and discussed during SHERPA’s annual conference. The first part of the conference (Monday 30 November) will focus on the vision for EU rural areas by 2040. The second part of the conference (Tuesday 1 December) will focus on how to engage local actors in the development of a vision for rural areas.
