This edition of the EAFRD Projects Brochure illustrates how the mainstreaming of the bioeconomy is being accelerated by Rural Development Programmes (RDPs) around Europe.

A sustainable bioeconomy, while it benefits everyone, has particular relevance for rural communities. The twelve projects featured in this Projects Brochure illustrate how RDPs are helping rural communities seize the opportunities offered by the bioeconomy through the production of sustainable food and feed, innovative bio-based products, renewable energy, environmentally sustainable growth and awareness raising.

This is the report of the ENRD Seminar 'Bioeconomy: Seizing the Opportunity for Rural Europe'.

A variety of rural stakeholders gathered to share practical examples of bioeconomy initiatives in rural territories across the EU and discuss the role of EU policy instruments to support sustainable bio-based initiatives in rural areas. They concluded that the three main elements in mainstreaming the bioeconomy are: capacity building, cooperation and a holistic approach to sustainability.

This documents explores the role of awareness‑raising and communication in promoting the development of sustainable bioeconomy value chains in European rural areas.

The document is part of the analytical work carried out by the ENRD Thematic Group on 'Mainstreaming the Bioeconomy'.

This document presents an overview of the existing policy tools and instruments supporting the bioeconomy at European, national and local level, highlighting their applications and possible synergies.

Beim „Networking“, also der Pflege von Beziehungen – und die Pflege von Beziehungen zur Entwicklung des ländlichen Raums ist dafür ein erstklassiges Beispiel – geht es vor allem um Menschen. Man trifft sich, man erschließt sich neue Denk- und Arbeitsweisen, man baut gemeinsam etwas Neues auf, etwas, das größer ist als die Summe seiner Teile und das ländlichen Gemeinschaften an jedem beliebigen Ort von Nutzen ist.

Anlässlich der ENRD-Veranstaltung networX, der bislang größten organisierten Zusammenkunft der europäischen Netzwerke für den ländlichen Raum in der Programmperiode 2014-2020, wollen wir den Geist der Kontaktpflege würdigen und den zehnten Jahrestag des Europäisches Netzwerks für die Entwicklung des ländlichen Raums (ENRD) begehen.

Das Buch beleuchtet die Netzwerkarbeit zur Entwicklung des ländlichen Raums aus der Sicht junger Menschen, denn sie sind es, die der weiteren Entwicklung dieses Raums in Europa den Weg weisen werden. Darüber hinaus veranschaulicht das Buch, wie Netzwerke die Gründung von Unternehmen im ländlichen Raum, den Umweltschutz, das ländliche Erbe und die ländliche Gemeinschaft stärken – ihres Zeichens allesamt Felder, auf denen der Einfluss der Netzwerkarbeit auf die Entwicklung des ländlichen Raums nicht zu übersehen ist.

This is the main report of the 13th meeting of the National Rural Networks (NRNs) in the 2014-2020 period. Event co-organised by the Irish Rural Network Support Unit.
