Case Study: Learning Networks for LEADER in Flanders

The Flemish NSU organised a series of Learning Networks for LEADER meetings focussing on specific topics, in order to support the exchange of information, invite topic experts and improve LEADER and CLLD implementation.

Project summary: 

This methodological case study explores LEADER ‘learning networks’ organised by the Flemish Rural Network support unit to encourage information exchange among Local Action Groups (LAGs) and experts in order to improve LEADER/CLLD implementation.

Project results: 

The opportunity was to have peer-to-peer learning on themes which are important to the LAGs, and the meetings are held on a regular basis. The format of the meetings and the process of developing the themes enables all LAGs to participate.
