Since 2016 the Institute for Rural Development Research (IfLS) is part of the international "New Ideas for New Opportunities" network. The aim of this association of now over 150 ERASMUS actors is to create a space for exchanging ideas, learning resilience and creativity, as well as finding potential partners and building long-term relationships.
So far, this has mainly taken place at an annual networking event organized by the Romanian "Center for Promoting Lifelong Learning” (CPIP), where professionals from the public and private sectors could develop project ideas and establish contacts.
In the just published magazine "New Ideas New Goals" the network members from all EU member states and further associated countries now present themselves. The IfLS is also represented and presents the two projects SDGimp and SEMA, which can be read online on pages 61-63.
