Do you want to join people from across Europe on a course on social innovation in rural areas?

Applications are now being accepted to take part in a one-week Advanced Course on Social Innovation in Rural Areas in Zaragoza, Spain. All participants will be exempt from the payment of registration fees.

This course is jointly organised by the International Centre for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies (CIHEAM), through the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Zaragoza (IAMZ), and the EU H2020 project SIMRA (Social Innovation in Marginalised Rural Areas)

The course is designed for 25 professionals with a university degree or equivalent. It is intended for decision makers, public, private and third sector development agents, evaluators, facilitators, technical advisors, researchers and other stakeholders involved in promoting, financing, planning, implementing or assessing social innovation projects in rural areas.

The deadline for the submission of applications is 6 September 2019. The deadline may be extended for candidates not requiring a visa and not applying for a grant if there are free places available.

Candidates external to the SIMRA Consortium from Mediterranean countries and from other European countries may apply for scholarships covering the cost of travel and full board accommodation in the Hall of Residence on the Aula Dei Campus.
