Rural Entrepreneurship Gateway

Welcome to the Homepage of the Rural Entrepreneurship Gateway

Promoting and strengthening entrepreneurship is one of the most important approaches to addressing the economic problems of rural communities and is attracting fresh attention with the dramatic economic downturn in many EU Member States.

The aim of this on-line gateway is to allow you to find information on a wide range of issues connected to rural entrepreneurship.

You can begin exploring the Gateway by clicking on one of the buttons below. You will find a selection of resources covering many aspects of rural entrepreneurship, including various documentation (reports, consultation documents, briefing papers, guidance papers, leaflets and other documents relevant to this theme), approaches, aspects and activities undertaken by various stakeholders.

All NRNs are invited to continue contributing to the Rural Entrepreneurship Gateway. You can contact the ENRD Contact Point via My ENRD or The structure of the Gateway is flexible and adaptable to any further areas of thematic interest that may emerge from the NRNs and other rural development stakeholders.
