Federation of Rural Economy and Agricultural Societies
I graduated as an agronomist 1980 and worked as a farm advisor for about 16 years. During these years I also had a two years assignment in a development project in Costa Rica. Since then I have been working with rural development and the European funding programs. I was the manager of the Swedish Network for Leader+ until 2008 and has ever since worked for the SE National Rural Network within the RDP programming period 2007-2013. The main tasks have always been related to LAG animation and transnational cooperation. I am half time employed by the Swedish Federation of Rural Economy and Agricultural Societies which also is a member of the consortium having the contract for the ENRD Contact Point. Half timne my employer is the SE Board of Agriculture, also Managing Authority for the RDP. I have been the network representative both in the reference group for the preparation the current Swedish RDP and in the reference group for the midterm review of the SE RDP.
