OIR accompanies a delegation from Georgia in Austria

@ ÖIR GmbH

On November 14-20, 2018, a Georgian delegation composed of Local Action Group board members from the Georgian region of Keda, representatives of the national Ministry of Agriculture and regional Ministry of Agriculture of the Adjara Province as well as project partners from the NGO CENN visited Austria, starting with the premises of OIR. The aim of the study tour was to provide insight on the Austrian LAG management as well as types of projects funded. This study tour led the group through three Austrian LAGs: Donau-Böhmerwald, Pramtal-Sauwald, Südliches Waldviertel – Nibelungengau. The LAG managers introduced the LAGs, further elaborating on key issues such as the projects selection process. Based on their recommendations, several LEADER co-funded projects were also visited. OIR will welcome a second delegation, in May 2019, to visit other regions and LAGs.
Special thanks the LAG managers and other local representatives who supported us: Georg Ecker (Regional Parliament of Upper Austria), Klaus Diendorfer (LAG manager Donau-Böhmerwald), Alois Selker (Mayor of Sigharting), Johannes Karrer (LAG manager Pramtal-Sauwald), Dieter Holzer (Chairman LAG Südliches Waldviertel – Nibelungengau), Thomas Heindl (LAG manager Südliches Waldviertel – Nibelungengau), Vera Serdinsek (LAG assistant Südliches Waldviertel – Nibelungengau).
