Polirural H2020 – Atlas of the best practices Dragan Mishevski


Polirural Atlas of the best practices is presenting another story about the new entrant case study of Dragan Mishevski from Pilot11 in North Macedonia.

,,My interest in beekeeping started about 2 years ago, while I was helping another beekeeper to build a portable trailer for transportation of beehives. While working on these construction activities I became increasingly interested in bees and their way of living. From that point, with the help of the beekeeper where I was working on his trailer, I started production of honey with several beehives” – said Mishevski.

Polirural H2020 – Application of System Dynamics Modelling (SDM) to Regional Foresight


The PoliRural H2020 Project is pioneering the application of System Dynamics Modelling (SDM) to Regional Foresight.

Several experiments related to the application of SDM in the 12 PoliRural pilots are now underway, and some preliminary results can already be announced.

One of the most important results so far is the development of a general System Dynamics Model for Rural Regions, based on 8 interconnected modules containing over 300 parameters. Initial results point to the usefulness of this tool to add tangible value to regional planning and foresight analysis for rural areas.
