A recent workshop – 16 January 2020 – brought to Brussels over 40 participants that will be facilitating and monitoring the activities of the Multi-Actor Platforms (MAPs) across Europe.
Within the SHERPA project, the Multi-Actor Platforms aim to bring together and enable relevant actors within the fields of science, society and policy, to exchange and co-create knowledge on rural topics. The role of facilitators and monitors is rather important as they will be the main drivers for putting forward recommendations on specific rural topics to the European level.
During the workshop, participants had the chance to exchange with peers and project partners on the best approaches to identify and engage with relevant local actors.
The project will help implement 40 MAPs across Europe to enable a strong science-society-policy interface that could shape the future of rural policies.
