Case Study: Danish IT based project prioritisation tool for RDP objectives

The Danish Managing Authority commissioned an online tool used for evaluating applications for LEADER support, taking a baseline and measuring interventions, in addition to scoring against priorities.

Project summary: 

This methodological case study explores the development and use of an online tool by the Danish Managing Authority for evaluating applications for LEADER support, taking a baseline and measuring interventions, and scoring against Rural Development Programme (RDP) priorities.

Project results: 

The current IT tool is in pilot phase, using existing paper-based application forms, and an Excel based prioritisation tool, before the appropriate (tableau) software is applied to the system. This has been conducted alongside a tour of LAGs to collect information on applications and to conduct a training session on how the tool will operate. The tool has been accepted for use by all LAGs, and is now under consideration for use by Fisheries LAGs.
