Social Innovation in Marginalised Rural Areas (SIMRA) is a project funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. SIMRA seeks to advance understanding of social innovation and innovative governance in agriculture, forestry and rural development, and how to boost them, particularly in marginalised rural areas across Europe, with a focus on the Mediterranean region (including non-EU) where there is limited evidence of outcomes and supporting conditions.
This Horizon 2020 project, coordinated by the James Hutton Institute, started on the 1st April 2016 and will continue for four years.
The partnership consists of 26 partners in Europe and in the Mediterranean Region. Four members of Euromontana participate: UHI Perth, ENRI, EURAC and SAB. Andreja Borec from Maribor University is part of the project’s Social Innovation Think Tank (advisory body). Euromontana is the co-leader of the Work Package on Communication and Dissemination.
