Dr Maura Farrell, Senior Lecturer in the Rural Studies Centre at NUI Galway working on the National Rural Network project was an invited speaker at a recent conference held by the RURALIZATION Project in Budapest, Hungary from the 8th to 9th of November 2021.
This project, funded under the Horizon 2020 programme, is based around the idea that a process of ‘ruralisation’ can change development patterns in rural areas overcoming population and economic decline and generating new opportunities. To foster a ‘ruralisation’ process across Europe, rural society needs new policy-relevant knowledge to help address the diverse needs and features of rural areas in Europe, which the RURALIZATION project aims to generate.
