WHAT IS IT AND WHERE, WHEN?

ERRIN and Inova Plus are working with ESPON to develop Transnational Outreach Activities (TNO). After three successful events earlier this year in Budapest, Paris, and Ireland, our next event of 2018 will be taking place in Nova Gorica, Slovenia on the 16th May 2018.

AIM OF THE CONFERENCE

Rural-urban linkages and depopulation is a main policy challenge, particularly in the territories of Southern European countries. Smart and innovative approaches to respond to the developmental challenges of rural areas. 

Population shrinkage results in a growing mismatch between the supply and demand for services and income poverty rates are higher in rural and/or intermediate regions (compared to urban areas) in several Southern European countries (Spain, Portugal, Greece and Italy).

The aim of the workshop will be to gain a better understanding of the challenges of rural depopulation and develop recommendations for policy-makers, supported by ESPON evidence.
