4th International Scientific Conference on Rural Development
”Chances and Challenges for the European Rural Development (2021-2027)”
The aim of the conference:
In the new planning period, the Multiannual Financial Framework and the Next Generation EU are designed to mitigate the socio-economic consequences of the Covid19 pandemic in the European Union. In addition, these two instruments together will help the EU to strengthen the mainstreaming of key Community policies and climate considerations,
as well as the digital switchover and regional cohesion, resilience building and the management of the BREXIT situation.
But what does this mean for us? What do the European countryside, especially in Central and Eastern Europe, experience from these effects?
To what extent do the resources of the new planning period contribute to the retention of rural capacity,
the development of local opportunities and sustainable development?
The aim of the conference is to provide practitioners, creators of rural development and representatives of scientific community with scientific tools and methods to practise common thinking
and outline effective problem-solving methods.
Participants of the Conference take part in scientific and poster sessions.
