A group of young agronomists combined RDP support with innovative financial solutions like crowdfunding to develop a self-sufficient farm growing local, quality organic products.
Setting up a fruit juice processing plant that operates with renewable energy.
A series of seminars to create opportunities for formal and tacit knowledge transfer between experienced farmers and newcomers to agriculture.
A young female farmer used RDP support to develop a farm business that would provide her with sufficient income in order to become a full time farmer.
Modernisation of a cannery with new machinery leading to improved competitiveness and a stronger local short supply chain.
Construction of a new, versatile building consisting of a coworking space, a cultural hall and a tourist office, enhancing the services offered to the residents of a rural municipality.
