The SIMRA project dedicated to innovation in marginalized rural areas officially ended on March 31, 2020. This very successful project advanced understanding of social innovation and innovative governance in agriculture, forestry and rural development, and how to boost them, particularly in marginalised rural areas. The SIMRA project derived many comprehensive outputs and broadened knowledge of the emergence and development of social innovation in Europe and the Mediterranean area, both in theory and in practice. Key project outputs are deliverables, collections of social examples, policy briefs, a practice guide, an evaluation manual and dozens of scientific publications.
