Back to LEADER Reloaded Conference
The LEADER Reloaded Conference that took place in Évora on the 26-28 september, organised by ELARD under the 2018/19 Portuguese Presidency,  was a suitable moment for analysing, rethinking and discussing what comes next, i.e. the future policies and tendencies in the financial framework for post-2020


During the conference 287 participants from 28 european countries engaged in a series of discussions, analysis and development of proposals, as well as in talks and exchanges of cooperation ideas between rural territories of the EU; three delegations from the Republic of Moldova, Sweden and Romania were shortly hosted on their way to the conference by three Portuguese LAGs (ADRIMAGADL ESDIME); the day of their arrival over 50 participants visited six local projects supported by the host LAG in Évora, Monte ACE, and all the participants visited the exhibition of posters from 18 countries during the conference.
