MOVING and SHERPA assess the state of play of Europe’s rural areas

Mar 23, 2023 | News

After meeting physically for the first time in Switzerland last October, MOVING went back online for the fifth Steering Committee. On 7 and 8 February 2023, project partners met virtually to take stock of the progress achieved during the first half of the project and discuss the next steps for the last part of it. Over the last couple of years there has been good progress on the various strands of research carried out.  

For the remainder of the project (mid 2024) MOVING will focus on the cross-case comparison of the 23 value chains, the policy analysis and the foresight exercise. A workshop was held to help refine the Conceptual and Analytical Framework (CAF) as regards to resources, value chains, governance, and outcomes and how can they be integrated into the updated version of the CAF. 

The morning of the second day was devoted to dissemination activities. Partners heard about the making process of the MOVING Story Maps. In the last months, these 454 interactive story maps contain descriptions of value chains and are organised into geo localised events.
