ABOUT_1920x600

The RURALIZATION team is proud to present the project mid-term conference which will be held in November  2021, dedicated to the H2020 Ruralization project results. Within the course of an on-site and virtual meetings with experts and stakeholders, the debate will be focused on 3 discussion rooms: rural researching, rural generations and policy-making.

We would like to invite you to participate in the discussion room of your preference, as well as visiting the virtual exposition which is going to take place with the best photos submitted during the RURALIZATION Photo competition.

During the policy-making session, topics related to access to land and land innovations will be addressed by members of the RURALIZATION consortium, as well as external stakeholders and policy makers. 

Researchers and other research projects representatives will be part of the session on rural researching while young people from rural areas and representatives of rural associations will be able to participate during the session on rural generations.
