Neuropublic, serving as partner for the Greek pilot, is pleased to announce the successful initiation of communication channels with stakeholders. This development represents a significant milestone for the Greek pilot site as we endeavour to foster collaboration and gather valuable insights from all involved parties. The pivotal input of the stakeholders constitutes the bedrock for the completion of the forthcoming tasks acting and are integral to the foundation of the PoliRuralPlus project.

As part of our engagement strategy, we are reaching out to stakeholders identified during our previous project, thereby nurturing these well-established relationships. The objective is to reopen communication channels and introduce them to the new scopes and goals of the PoliRuralPlus project. Their past contributions have been invaluable, and we eagerly anticipate their continued support and insights, marking a new cycle of fruitful and productive collaborations.

We are currently designing our communication strategy and have already initiated preliminary discussions. This network includes individuals from both the private and public sectors, statutory bodies, advisors, researchers, young professionals, representatives from the tourism sector, and individual experts with diverse backgrounds, ranging from regional policy to scientific disciplines. This network is expected to contribute effectively to the development of rural-urban linkages and opportunities, as well as to examine the impact of COVID-19 on these dynamics and the manner in which it has influenced them.

Embarking on this journey of collaboration will enable us to decipher the key insights from our interactions with stakeholders, providing crucial inputs to steer our project's development, address agricultural challenges, and ultimately lead to the preparation and creation of comprehensive regional action plans.
