The European Commission, DG VI, has published a call for proposals for pilot and demonstration projects concerning innovative schemes for women in agriculture and in rural areas.

Under the Guidance section of the European Agricultural Guidance and Guarantee Fund (EAGGF), the Commission intends to support pilot and demonstration projects aimed at promoting innovative projects, focusing on the support and promotion of women working in rural areas. The specific areas covered by this call are indicated in the tender documents.

Projects will be selected having regard to the following criteria:

- Exemplary concern for the situation of women in rural areas;
- Innovative content;
- Community-wide application, with or without regional specificities;
- Technical and economic feasibility;
- Direct impact on rural development, with particular reference to matters such as income, employment, the status and living conditions of women in agriculture and rural areas;
- Representativeness and possibility of transferring methods and/or results obtained in geographical areas other than that in which the project is to be carried out, and the quality of the measures included to secure such a transfer;
- Compatibility with Community policies.

The evaluation and shortlisting of pilot projects and demonstration projects will be carried out by the services of the Commission, assisted by independent experts.
