Integrated approach

The aims and activities of the LoProDeN project join highest possible with the main aims of GRIP-IT. It is going to be integrated as it contains activities which are based on each other: production of local products, its marketing and promotion, sales in the four GRIP IT regions, exchange these experiences in partnership in an international environment. With these knowledge it is appointed to develop the rural areas in the three countries: social employment, arouse youth people’s interest in their residence, on these bases to grow the opportunities of tourism.

Our project is integrated because:

Experience are going to be exchanged between international partners.
The partners know each others' countries and products. It helps the development of tourism too.
Young people and their organisations can participate in creation of sales and marketing stores – they can find the opportunities in their residence, and they will be interested in its developing.
Boom of tourism and local products and work of young people generate saving of customs and traditions.
Logistics Centre is going to be an Employment project too. (social employment).

Follow-up activities

The project will create the opportunity of a wide national, international – horizontal and vertical – partnership which can be useful in the next programming period of the EU.

The results will create the opportunity of the free flow of information and product. If the common marketing and sales actions can be effective, sustainable rural tourism will expand.

Integrated projects will be supported in the 2007-2013 programming period in the EU. If this project can operate well and partners can keep contact after that, they can have further projects to spread the philosophy of sustainable rural development in production and tourism around Europe.
