About the MAP
In Hungary, the research group of the Department of Social Research at the Institute of Agricultural Economics coordinates the Hungarian Rural Prosperity Multi-Actor Platform. The platform operates at the national level since it expects to have the greatest impact if the territory is not further subdivided.
The MAP’s core group is the CAP Pillar II sub-working group established by the Ministry of Agriculture to facilitate the CAP strategic planning process. The platform will carry out situation analysis and needs assessment regarding employment, development of human resources (i.e. reskilling, upskilling), business and social entrepreneurship, and sustainable value chains and it will propose suitable policy solutions.
Since the topic is embedded into the CAP strategic planning, the MAP requires the cooperation of policy makers, researchers, entrepreneurs/farmers, and members of the civilian sector or in broader context the society with various stakeholders.
The activities of this MAP are designed to achieve the following specific objectives:
- MAP objective 1: Situation analysis.
- MAP objective 2: Needs assessment.
- MAP objective 3: Exploration of knowledge gaps and research needs of rural economy development in the context of employment, development of human resources (i.e. reskilling, upskilling), business and social entrepreneurship, and sustainable value chains.
Policy, research, entrepreneurship and civil stakeholders.
