The first newsletter of the SIMRA project has been published! It provides information on SIMRA’s website and social media presence; on SIMRA’s kick-off meeting in Aberdeen, Scotland in May 2016; and on SIMRA’s first upcoming event: the Social Innovation Think Tank workshop to be held in Bratislava, Slovakia, on the 28th-30th October 2016.
The new Horizon 2020 project SIMRA (Social Innovation in Marginalised Rural Areas) officially started on April 1st, 2016 and will continue for four years. The project 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 to disseminate new knowledge to policy-makers.
