In order to ensure that BE-Rural outputs link closely to ongoing policy debates, a policy workshop, targeting relevant EU institutions and EU-level sector associations, will be organised in Brussels to discuss existing policy gaps and potential measures to address them.
A mid-term conference in one of the regions and a final dissemination conference at the end of the project in Brussels will serve to communicate the results, spread the knowledge of the potential the European regions have and what has been reached in the three years.
