Official launch event of the Rural toolkit – an opportunity to learn more about funding opportunities for EU rural areas

The Rural toolkit is the first comprehensive online guide to EU funding and support opportunities for rural areas in the European Union.

During the launch event, a presentation and live demo of the tool will be delivered. It will be an opportunity to gain insight into how EU programmes can foster development in rural territories, by supporting the initiatives of local authorities, institutions, businesses and individuals. Best practices and inspiring stories will also be showcased.

The Rural toolkit is an initiative of the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy (DG REGIO) and Joint Research Centre (JRC), in collaboration with the Directorate-General for Agriculture and Rural Development (DG AGRI). It is part of the long-term vision for the EU’s rural areas.

Information on the web streaming will be available on this page.
