FARO-EU (Foresight Analysis of Rural areas Of Europe) is a EU FP6 Specific Targeted Research Project, with a two year duration (Jan 2007-Dec 2009).
The main questions to be answered in the project are:
- What are major trends and driving forces affecting rural regions?
- At which scales do they operate?
- Which of these processes are amenable to change through RD policies and where? i.e. where EU support for rural development will create the most value added at EU level?
- How rural policies might be adapted in the future to take account of these processes?
