Leader+ interactive

Welcome to Leader+ interactive where we provide you with a variety of information tools to help you with your more detailed requests for contacts and project information.


Leader+ is one of four initiatives financed by EU structural funds and is designed to help rural actors consider the long-term potential of their local region.

Encouraging the implementation of integrated, high-quality and original strategies for sustainable development, it has a strong focus on partnership and networks of exchange of experience.

A total of EUR 5 046.5 million for the period 2000-2006 will be spent, of which EUR 2 105.1 million is funded by the EAGGF Guidance section and the remainder by public and private contributions.


Please note that the Leader+ Contact Point has now ceased activities. However the Leader+ website remains open although it will not be updated. This includes the interactive databases. Certain publications will be added as they become available.
