PROJECT NAME: EUropean REgions of GAstronomy Building resilience and creating economic growth (EUREGA).

EUREGA IT'S PART OF THE EUROPEAN PROGRAMME INTERREG EUROPEhttps://www.interregeurope.eu/

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Gastronomy, local and regional food heritage is a common European cultural heritage, and as such also a major economic asset. Regional agro-food value chains and the cooperation they generate between various sectors including agriculture, tourism, hospitality, education etc. can have a serious positive impact on local development. Yet European regions of gastronomy are facing serious difficulties like losing their gastronomic uniqueness due to globalisation and underestimation of gastronomy as cultural heritage that needs to be protected. The 9 partners of the EUREGA project have realised that the specificity of the regional gastronomy and food sector requires appropriate public support to be translated into local and regional public policies. They are therefore working towards ensuring that food policies and development plans related to food and gastronomy are effective. 

EXPECTED RESULTS:  EUREGA's main objective is to have EU regional and national strategies and policies included and recognised as both a cultural asset and strong element in regional cultural identity. This should lead to creating stronger and more resilient regions by protecting and stimulating gastronomy as part of their cultural heritage and identifying new opportunities for economic development.
