14 Incopil Basically its a factory of condiments. Their main product is dried powered pepper (paprika) Its a leader in its market, Its success is clearly due to the reunion of several old producers which were too small to be competitive in the market on their own We must promote in our producers the capacity, and the will, to cooperate with each other Incopil (site) Incopil history

15 Welcome! Mora Fluviario invites you to river trip – a paradigm of a Iberian river. You may observe different types of habitats and the living beings in those. Youll get to know species, some of which disappeared from our rivers... Fluviario de Mora (River Aquarium of Mora ???) From one of the leading national newspapers: Mora, Évora, 19 Mar - Um ano após ter aberto as portas ao público, o Fluviário de Mora festeja sexta-feira o seu primeiro aniversário com teatro, circo e entradas gratuitas para jovens e idosos, esperando atingir os 210 mil visitantes 210 thousand visitors in the first year Funded by EU regional development policy and not rural development...... But it could have been

16 Some personal ideas #1 Tradition, history and heritage must be emphasised.... BUT – People will not live only from artisan works, jams, and mushrooms – Rural tourism must be professionalised – Minimum dimensions should be kept – Partnerships are essential Some examples of false useless projects

17 Some personal ideas #2 People are the basis – Need motivated and well formed youth Open-minded Youngsters must leave their home regions to see – Selectivity in formation programmes Entrepreneurship, Innovation, Capacity to cooperate are key elements to promote

18 Economy is the principal element – There will be no development if not creating wealth; – Profit is not a bad word!!!!! Its essential; New projects should aim at – Finding regional comparative advantages – Productivity; competitiveness – And most of all: Export basis Some personal ideas #3

19 Environment will be a key element – To maintain the advantages of rural areas – Amenities to be explored Tourism, food quality, energy – We live where others want to spend their retirements, must take advantage from...... And be happy about it! Some personal ideas #4
