About the project

The overall objective of URMA is to promote urban-rural partnerships as a tool to strengthen the potential for innovation in European metropolitan areas. Therefore, sub-objectives are:

  • Interregional exchange of experiences on urban-rural cooperation/partnerships
  • Identification of different types of urban-rural partnerships as well as regional innovation systems, taking into account Partner’s good practices
  • Improving the effectiveness of regional and local policies in the field of innovation generation within urban-rural partnerships

This will enable the establishment of a regional, national and European policy agenda for a sustainable development of metropolitan areas. Moreover, it will result in lasting and balanced positive effects on the competitiveness of metropolitan areas, also in global terms. The key advantage to this approach is that urban and rural areas will benefit on equal terms and that cities will not gain competitiveness at the expense of rural areas and vice-versa.
