AGROPOL

AGROPOL-study (carried out on behalf of the European Commission, DG AGRI) studies the development of a cross-border agrifood model region. The aim of this pilot project is to identify key factors for succesful interregional agrifood cooperation boosting the rural economy. The project consortium chose a “learning by doing” approach and co-develops 2 crossborder agrifood strategies in 2 different European areas: in the Spanish-Portuguese Euroregion EuroACE (Extremadura, Centra, Alentejo) and in the Austrian (Carinthia)-Slovenian border region. The regional stakeholders are in the front seat; the research consortium facilitates the process and provides regional development expertise, focussing on a value chain approach.
