The first ENRD LEADER Thematic Lab (Brussels, 17 October 2019) looked at how LEADER can effectively support Smart Villages development.
Following presentations on the ENRD Thematic Group work on Smart Villages and European Commission’s perspective, local practitioners shared diverse experiences of how LEADER and Smart Villages can work together in their Member States. Participants discussed barriers and risks for LEADER LAGs and ways to overcome them, as well as success factors that can enable LEADER to effectively support Smart Villages and how these can be incorporated in the CAP Strategic Plans.
