Activities & Outputs

URMA is mainly focused on the exchange of experiences through an array of conferences, public and project internal workshops, study visits in all regions and pilot implementations. The project will be carried out in a series of Components. Thus, beside Component 1 – Management and Coordination (dealing with day-to-day project and financial management) and Component 2 (Communication and dissemination) there are two other Components:
 

Component 3: Exchange of experiences dedicated to the identification and analysis of good practices

The aim of this Component is the accumulation, exchange and improvement of experiences and knowledge on an effective and sustainable development of urban-rural partnerships; experiences of the partner regions will be exchanged and evaluated in order to identify success factors as well as obstacles and to highlight good practices. This will be done through workshops, seminars and study visits. Finally, implementation plans that specify how each region participating in the project will work to integrate the lessons learnt from the cooperation into its local/ regional or if relevant national policies will be prepared. Furthermore, on project level, recommendations addressed to the European level will be jointly developed and will result in a joint declaration fostering urban-rural partnerships as new tool for regional cooperation.

Component 4: Pilot implementation on urban-rural partnerships

A scientifically monitored pilot experience about the application of urban-rural partnerships will be realized in three regions (Hamburg, Lombardy, Twente) in order to validate the feasibility of the good practices exchanged. It aims at a learning effect for all partners, giving hints how to develop an urban-rural partnership to strengthen the potential for innovation in metropolitan areas and their further hinterlands. Each partner region intends to test the urban-rural partnership approach with regard to its own specificities and priorities.
