Elaboration of a Regional Development Concept (REK) for the Limes Region Hohenlohe-Heilbronn

The action group "Limes Region Hohenlohe Heilbronn" applies for recognition as a LEADER region for the funding period 2023-2027. In addition to the establishment of cooperation structures in the form of a regional partnership, a region-specific development concept (REK) is required for this. The REK describes the regional challenges, needs for action, potentials and development goals. On this basis, IfLS Beratung und Projekte GmbH develops a mission statement for the region together with regional stakeholders and defines fields of action for the implementation of concrete measures.

In addition to the objectives of the state of Baden-Württemberg, the national CAP strategy plan and the EU (especially the Green Deal), a thematic focus is on region-specific objectives in the fields of action "joie de vivre and enjoyment", "between tradition and modernity" and "future-proof and crisis-resistant". The Upper Germanic-Raetian Limes, which connects the area in a straight line from north to south, is the connecting bracket of the application.

The process of developing the REK takes into account the change in the culture of participation. In addition to face-to-face workshops, various digital participation formats and tools for online communication and cooperation are used in the course of the strategy process.

The process is divided into the following implementation steps:

  • Socio-economic regional analysis, SWOT and needs analysis
  • Mission statement and development strategy
  • Action plan & implementation concept
  • Ex-ante evaluation

The strategy process takes place over the course of 11 months from September 2021 to July 2022.
