Launching LEADER Cooperation North and South
8th-9th November 2016
The Rural Network for Northern Ireland and the Ireland National Rural Network hosted a joint conference exploring the theme of LEADER Co-operation within the context of their current Rural Development Programmes.
This 2 day conference took place at the Canal Court Hotel, Newry, Co. Down and included representatives from LAGs in Northern Ireland and Ireland, as well as Managing Authorities and Network Support Units from UK and Ireland.
The event sought to:
- Launch and animate co-operation between Local Action Groups North and South;
- Bring clarity to the Cooperation process and approach in both regions and to confirm the role of the National Rural Network within this;
- Establish connections and partnerships with real opportunities to develop projects;
- Secure active participation and engagement of Local Action Groups;
- Provide opportunities for networking and sharing experience.
