  1. RUR@CT « European Regions for rural innovation »

  2. WHY RUR@CT ?Strategic foundations • Attractiveness and dynamism of rural areasdepend on their capacity of innovation • Rural territories have an innovation potential which is not enough developped and should contribute towards Lisbon european strategy 1st pillar = INNOVATION

  3. WHY RUR@CT ?Strategic foundations • This innovation potential is based on the development of endogenous and exogenous resources • Cooperation is an exogenous resource reinforcing the efficiency of regional policies thanks to the transfer of good practices 2nd pillar = TRANSFER

  4. WHY RUR@CT ?Strategic foundations • There is no rural development without agriculture, but rurality is not only agriculture (complementarity)… • Synergies are needed between the different programmes and european funds for the development of rural areas 3rd pillar = RURAL

  5. WHY RUR@CT ?Strategic foundations • Rural issues should be taken into account within regional policies • Regional level allows to guarantee a better territorial cohesion thanks to an integrated governance( rural / urban synergies…) 4th pillar = REGIONS

  6. HOW TO ORGANIZE RUR@CT ? Technical implementation of the 4 pillars RUR@CT REGIONS TRANSFER INNOVATION RURAL

  7. To promote rural innovations for…TerritorialCohesion To rpovide operationnal tools for…Capitalization and Transfer of good practices REGIONS TRANSFER INNOVATION RURAL Objectives of RUR@CT network

  8. Transfer of good practices ispossible possible only between similar structures having the same missions, responsabilities and capacities of action Partners with a status of regional public authority(or equivalent bodies) in priority at NUTS II level REGIONS TRANSFER INNOVATION RURAL A network of Regions for transferWhich kind of partners ?

  9. REGIONS TRANSFER INNOVATION RURAL Rural innovation (1)Which kind of good practices ? • A wide range of thematics • An integrated approach (rather than sectional) • Based on opportunities of rural areas (rather than handicaps) • A logic of investment (rather than subsidies) • A bottom-up and participative approach

  10. REGIONS TRANSFER INNOVATION RURAL Rural innovation (2)Which kind of good practices ? • Regional initiatives with a territorial implementation • Localinitiatives being part of a regional strategy • Successful initiatives having already produced tangibleoutputs • Initiatives whose transferability will be analyzed previously

  11. COOPERATION BETWEEN REGIONSSuccess factors (1) • Exchanging good practices is not enough, capitalization is necessary with the prospect of transfer • Capitalization implies to shareinformations between Regions partners of the network 1st succes factor = CAPITALIZATION

  12. COOPERATION BETWEEN REGIONSSuccess factors (2) • A political commitment is necessary for promoting the process of transferring good practices • Regions should have a proactive involvement,requiring operational results 2nd success factor = COMMITMENT

  13. COOPERATION BETWEEN REGIONSSuccess factors (3) • Capitalization and transfer of good practices require :- technical and methodological tools- financial resources and specific skills 3rd success factor = MEANS


  15. CAPITALIZATION COMMITMENT MEANS PROJECTS OF COOPERATIONExploring new solutions already experimented elsewhere Boat = Project Course = Objective Crew = partners

  16. CAPITALIZATION COMMITMENT MEANS INTERREG PROGRAMMEMany projects with different objectives…

  17. CAPITALIZATION COMMITMENT MEANS INTERREG PROGRAMME …but some of them having the same course

  18. CAPITALIZATION COMMITMENT MEANS RUR@CT A network of projects and partners… … for a wide capitalization of good practices

  19. CAPITALIZATION COMMITMENT MEANS RUR@CTA tool for capitalization • Communication tools => a web site and a database • Operational informations => a list of analyzed good practices => methodological documents

  20. METHODOLOGICAL TOOLS Template n°1Description of the good practice Template n°2Evaluation of its transferability Template n°3Assessment of the transfer Methodological guideRecommandations for using the templates and for organizing the process of transfer

  21. DATABASE AND WEBSITE • 26 active Regions in transfer processes • 50 good practices from all over Europe RUR@CT MEMBERS ALL NET SURFERS 3 good practices 2 good practices1 transfer going on Access to Templates 1, 2, 3 Access to Templates 1 only 4 good practices1 transfer going on

  22. CAPITALIZATION COMMITMENT MEANS RUR@CTA commitment for the transfer Good practice «Exporting» Region «Importing » Region - Transferability expertise- Project and action plan

  23. CAPITALIZATION COMMITMENT MEANS RUR@CTDiversified financial means

  24. CAPITALIZATION COMMITMENT MEANS RUR@CTHow to go on board ? • To sign the charter for the commitment of the partners • To provide general informations by filling in a form Documents available at (or

  25. A TRANSNATIONALSTEERING COMMITTEE Composition • European Regions members of RUR@CT • European experts in the field of european development • European institutions (AER, CEMR, Committee of the Regions…) • European Rural Network Missions • Monitoring of RUR@CT activities • Defining strategic evolutions of the network • Managing juridical structuration into EGCT

  26. RUR@CTis also a forum for strategic debate • Conferences organized every 2 years « Innovative rural Regions »=> discussions and proposals related to the evolutions of european policy for rural development with the prospect of 2013, dealing with :- « health-check » of Common Agricultural Policy (CAP)- review of european budget- reform of cohesion policy

  27. SCHEDULE FOR IMPLEMENTATION Until November 2008 • Conception of methodological tools • Development of database and web site • Analysing and supplying 50 good practices in the database December 2008 • Inauguration of the website and the database • Identification of issues and good practices connected to the needs of partners From january 2009 • Launching of bilateral or multilateral processes for the transfer • Updating of the database (3 new good practices / month) • Organization of methodological and thematic seminars in Bruxelles • Launching of a juridical study about EGCT status if the network

  28.
