The new Horizon 2020 project SIMRA (Social Innovation in Marginalised Rural Areas) has officially started on the 1st April 2016 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 disseminate new knowledge to policy-makers.
Coordinated by the James Hutton Institute in Scotland, several Euromontana members are directly involved: the University of Highlands and Islands (Scotland), SAB (Switzerland), ENRI (Norway), EURAC (Italy).
