10 years FARO Advies: projects overview
In this document you find an overview of all projects executed over the last 10 years, divided over the six main focus themes of FARO Advies.
Talent Development and entrepreneurship for young people
This Interreg V-B North Sea project (2014-2020) aims to support the development of young people’s skills and interest in a particular field that has regional economic or community relevance. The project might help in counteracting the tendency of the so called ‘brain drain’, the early leave of young talented people from rural areas.
2014-2015 Commissioned by and in close cooperation with the Province Noord-Brabant and four regional networks in southeast Brabant (NL) FARO Advies is designing a new project framework around Health, Care and Healthy Ageing.
Regional branding of de Baronie (Noord-Brabant, the Netherlands)
Identity development by using ’slow food’ and the ‘slow’-philosophy (2010-2011).
FARO Consultancy assisted the further development of the regional identity of de Baronie. The LEADER–group 'de Baronie' is able to reinforce regional identity by stimulating the cooperation between municipalities and enterpreneurs.
LEADER program 'Kop van Noord-Holland'
In the northern part of the province of Noord-Holland, including the Wadden Island Texel, the socio-economic EU program LEADER has been running since 2000. FARO Advies, accompanied the executive framework for the actual program (2006-2013), has been commissioned by NHN to assist in implementating of the new program (2014-2020).
Transformation of farmsteads
Investing in spatial and social-economic quality
Due to a number of factors including agricultural upscaling, a lack of successors or a hampering global market, many farmers in the Netherlands have stopped farming which leads to the sale of the farmstead.
Cittaslow and regional branding
In the annual conference of Cittaslow in the Netherlands Peter Laan was invited to talk about the relation between Regional branding and marketing on the one hand and the Cittaslow concept on the other. The audience consisted of the mayors and the boards of the Dutch Cittaslow municipalities: Midden-Delfland, Alphen-Chaam and Borger-Odoorn and because the origin of Cittaslow is in Toscany (Italy) the President of Cittaslow International also participated in this conference.
Care hotel in former monastery Angeli Custodes
FARO Advies was asked to develop a care hotel concept in the former monastery Angeli Custodes in the town of Raalte (Overijssel, the Netherlands).
