The overall objective of R.E.N.E. is to strengthen the competitiveness of rural areas through the provision of a platform for exchanging information, experience and know-how on rural problems and solutions to these problems. The network aims to improve the synergy of rural area policies and funding programmes and strengthen the know-how of rural extension institutions responsible for these policies and programmes. Achievements: Since 2003 now about 3564 participants from 87 different regions and countries are transporting project results not only into 184 different institutions with about 50-2000 employees each, but also to the public in their regions. Since 2003 59 events (workshops, trainings, up-date-meetings, study visits, partner meetings and congresses) are the main instrument for up-grading information, exchange of experience, know-how-transfer and training of rural extension-worker/advisors. This current, last reporting period was the most active of all: 8 events with 928 participants. 220 participants took part in the congress in Vilnius, Lithuania which has been organised by our Lithuanian partner in cooperation with a DG-Research/World bank project for evaluation of rural policy implementation influencing structural change in rural areas. This was the most successful moment for transfer of knowledge between extension services and consulting of program making policy of all the RENE project time. Participants from 28 countries and 53 new institutions, including World Bank and western Balkan countries have been involved. A second important event was the first biogaz congress in Amiens, Picardie, France, realised by the French and Lower Saxony Chambers of Agriculture in public-private partnership with 15 innovative SMEs as exhibitors.
