Rural areas in Europe are affected by various problems encompassing depopulation, ageing population, a lack of non-agricultural employment, and a less competitive productive sector than in the urban areas. With the RURALAND project, 10 partners coming from 9 EU countries expressed their wish to promote innovative and competitive rural development policies. RURALAND is thus encouraging territorial competitiveness and supporting the economic diversification of rural areas by exchanging knowledge and identifying good practices.
The Interregional Cooperation Programme INTERREG IVC, financed by the European Union's Regional Development Fund, helps Regions of Europe work together to share experience and good practice in the areas of innovation, the knowledge economy, the environment and risk prevention. EUR 302 million is available for project funding but, more than that, a wealth of knowledge and potential solutions are also on hand for regional policy-makers.http://www.interreg4c.net/
