The last SIMRA newsletter is out!

Over the last four years, SIMRA partners collaborated closely with stakeholders at international, European and local levels to identify, delineate and boost the impact of social innovation in marginalised rural areas.

In February 19 and 20, SIMRA organised its final conference in Brussels, Belgium. With about 120 participants, the event gathered together representatives from European institutions (DG AGRI, DG REGIO, DG RTD, Intergroup on RUMRA & Smart Villages), local stakeholders, University and research centres and practitioners. This was a perfect opportunity to retrace the project’s achievements, hear testimonies of how social innovation happens in local contexts and pursue on the political measures which are needed to support social innovation.

The eighth (and last) SIMRA’s newsletter summarizes the highlights from the final conference and the list of the project’s results such as the MOOC, the policy and practice guides, brochures on social innovation, database of social innovation examples and many others.

If you wish to know more on how to implement and support social innovation in marginalised rural areas and to learn more on SIMRA’s results, read the last newsletter! Or also:

  • Download our resources and read about our results
  • Use our “Practice Guide” to help you with your social innovation
  • Share the guidelines in our “Policy Guide” to encourage policies that provide a supportive environment for social innovation at local, regional and European level
  • Don’t hesitate to use any of our findings to answer the European Commission’s upcoming consultations on the European Climate Law, the Farm to Fork Strategy, Biodiversity 2030 Strategy, or the Future of Research and Innovation, etc.

Although the project officially ends, do not hesitate to contact the SIMRA partners and suggest future collaborations.
