Website on rural development in Austria
Website and Social Media:
Communications, Enterprise, Leader, National Rural Network, Website
The National Rural Network website is one of the key communication tools of the NRN. The site contains information on the NRN itself and its work programme, updated news on rural development issues and developments, a bi-lingual database of rural development project examples, downloadable brochures and access to the flagship NRN publication – its bi-annual magazine ‘Ausblicke’. The website also provides information and interaction opportunities for LEADER Local Action Groups (LAGs) in Austria. In fact, individual LAGs have their own account and a dedicated space for sharing basic information, as well as news and information on LEADER events.
& RDP Region(s)
The main purpose is to serve as one of the main communication channels for the National Rural Network, so as to share relevant and up-to-date information with stakeholders, on key issues and themes. The website is also an effective tool for promoting the work of the NRN itself and its partners - as well as for highlighting the benefits of the RDP for rural communities in Austria.

Distribution & Promotion
Website that is easily accessible over the internet. The site is also promoted through the NRN's publications and events/seminars, as well as through the ENRD. In addition, partners (including LAGs) have placed a link to the site on their websites.
Assessment of effectiveness
The website is well laid-out and user-friendly, as well as regularly updated. Information on themes, events or indeed publications are easy to find and access. In particular, having ‘key sections’ translated into English, allows other NRNs to use the site – thereby increasing its effectiveness as a ‘networking’ tool.
