GRANULAR consortium gathered on 27th and 28th June in Pisa for a reflexive workshop to discuss the activities of the living labs established within the project and to debate on the potential activities of the replication labs to be created within the task lead by the European Rural Development Network.


The aim of the project is to generate novel datasets and methods to better understand the characteristics and dynamics of rural areas. It also aims to help rural actors grasp the specificities and diversity of their territories and identify main challenges and design tailored place-based policies to address those challenges.

In the project ERDN is represented by the Polish team – Pawel Chmielinski, Aleksandra Pawlowska and Barbara Wieliczko responsible for the replication labs as well as the teams from Politechnika Koszalińska leading the Polish living lab in Zachodniopomorskie and the teams from Lithuanian Centre for Social Sciences, Institute of Economics and Rural Development, LT – lead by Zivile Gedminaite and the IAE Romanian Academy, RO – lead by Monica Mihaela Tudor. Lithuanian and Romanian teams are to establish replication labs that are responsible for testing the results of the GRANULAR project.
