On 5 December 2017, DG Agri workshop “How can social innovations contribute to rural development?” took place in Brussels. Professor Tatiana Kluvánková, the leader of Work Package 2, Maria Nijnik, the project coordinator professor and other project partners were presenting the results of a one and a half year research done within the SIMRA H2020 project (http://www.simra-h2020.eu/).They were answering following questions: Why are social innovations likely to occur in some areas? and What can be done to increase the innovation potential in different types of marginalised rural areas? The aim of this workshop was to introduce expected contribution of the SIMRA H2020 project for practice and for the common agricultural policy (CAP) reform, as well as to get feedback from representatives of DG Agri dealing with EU policy on agriculture, rural development as well as all aspects of the CAP.
