Social innovation in Marginalised Rural Areas

SIMRA seeks to advance understanding of social innovation and innovative governance in agriculture, forestry and rural development, and how to boost them, particularly in marginalised rural areas across Europe, with a focus on the Mediterranean region (including non-EU) where there is limited evidence of outcomes and supporting conditions.
The first SITT SIMRA* Workshop will take place in Bratislava, Slovakia, from 26 to 28 October 2016 and is organized by the Institute of Forest Ecology of the Slovak Academy of Sciences in cooperation with the James Hutton Institute (Aberdeen, UK).
The workshop is considered to be an important starting point for the co-construction of knowledge with key stakeholders and its aim is to develop and maintain systematic knowledge exchange and a learning process via stakeholders’ consultations focusing on understanding and assessing social innovations.
