Female-Led Innovation in Agriculture and Rural Areas
The FLIARA project aims to create a European wide rural innovation ecosystem, which supports women-led innovative practices in farming and rural areas.
What is FLIARA about?
Women Led Innovations
200 innovative practices that contribute to a sustainable and viable rural environment identified in 10 European countries: Ireland, Netherlands, Germany, Czech Republic, Slovenia, Sweden, Finland, Spain, Romania and Italy.
Community of Practice
A hub of networking and training amongst key actors and relevant stakeholders to exchange ideas, experiences and innovative knowledge, encouraing future female innovations and entrepeneurship.
Foresight and Trend Analysis
FLIARA is currently working on its envisioning process to predict the role of women in the innovations required for sustainable farms and rural futures across EU Member States. These visions will be constructed by using an interactive foresight process, which will involve key stakeholders, at a local level creating a connection between their local contexts and sustainable futures.
As a result, FLIARA will combine futures and case study methods with network building and policy benchmarking. By developing visions for sustainable rural futures, FLIARA will identify the innovations needed to make them a reality.
“Rural women can play a key role in delivering a sustainable future through on-farm and off-farm innovative practices”
— Project Coordinator, Associate Professor
The multi-actor basis for FLIARA is established through bringing together organisations that engage in different ways in the research, innovation, networks, policy and practice environments
