Policy makers, experts, farmers, rural dwellers and new entrants are main target groups in each partner pilot region defined as regional panel members. The regional panel and the expertise of its members will play an important role in implementing the PoliRural project and contribute to the development of rural policy. The first talks and meetings with potential regional panel members (further – stakeholders) showed noticeable features in pilot regions. In general, addressed stakeholders are interested in the project itself and its results. Also, the opportunity to be involved in the local community is one of the main aspects of willingness to take part in project as regional panel member.
