Organised by European Network for Rural Development (ENRD), ‘networX’ aims to recognise the value of networking for rural development, demonstrate the results of the past ten years of rural networking and proactively look at its future.

Over 400 rural stakeholders from all over Europe will gather to discuss the role of networking for rural policy:

  • How to build / transform a network
  • Networking for innovation in agriculture and rural areas
  • LEADER/CLLD networking
  • Networking for evaluation
  • Promoting effective stakeholder engagement in networks

With his overview of all Interreg Europe projects that contribute on the subject, Marc Pattinson, the Policy Learning Platform's expert on Research and innovation will be present and contribute to the event. With his participation, Marc will contribute to discussions on regional and urban development policy networks.
