- Start date: 01 January 2005
- End date: 31 December 2005
This research is reviewing and assessing current and recently completed scientific research programmes in France into issues of rural economic development and land use policy. In addition to providing a comparative assessment of French research and the aims and objectives of the RELU programme, with a view to identifying areas of common interest and approach or areas where significant differences exist, the research examines the nature of interdisciplinary formations and configurations in the French programmes under study with a view to understanding how national constructions of scientific communities and disciplines differ within the field of rural economic and land use research. The research will additionally seek to identify specific instances and examples of innovation and ‘cutting edge’ research in both the social and natural sciences. Finally, the research is proselytising in France the research being undertaken through the RELU programme.
