Social innovation in the Balkans: a new SIMRA brochure of examples now available

SIMRA has just released its third brochure collecting examples of social innovation in marginalised rural areas in the Balkan peninsula.

The focus of the SIMRA project is on the European Union and the Mediterranean area, including the Balkan Peninsula in South-East Europe which includes both countries which are Member States of the EU along with some of those identified in the EU Western Balkans Strategy.

In the context of the 2018 Enlargement package, this third collection of good examples pays particular attention to the societal challenges faced in the Western Balkans countries and the social innovations emerging in their rural areas. Eight out of the ten initiatives in this brochure are located in marginalised rural areas outside the European Union, showcasing examples ranging from healthcare services to rural networking and including tourism development

You can also access the first SIMRA brochures by clicking here and get inspiration for your own territory.

The examples presented in these brochures are extracted from the SIMRA database, available on our project’s website. If you have an example of social innovation in marginalised rural areas to share, don’t hesitate to click here to submit it.

SIMRA – Social Innovation in Marginalised Rural Areas, a four-year EU Horizon 2020 project in which Euromontana is a partner.
