Thank you all for these amazing days in Vianden - Luxembourg!

Living & Experiencing not only the spirit of LEADER, but also the spirit of Europe in this moving world! You were over 300 to participate at this 8th LINC-event!


The aim of the annual LINC seminar is to gather those people together, who are interested in rural development of different areas of Europe in order to have the opportunity to exchange ideas with each other.

The international LINC organization welcomes rural developers such as members of LEADER groups/associations, LEADER board members, members of the National Networks, Management Authorities and Payment Agencies, project staff and all those people who are interested in the topic of rural development.

The LINC-conference site is situated in the “LEADER Éislek” region in the north of Luxembourg, in the heart of the Ardennes. Standing out by virtue of its natural beauty, with forested slopes, narrow rocky valleys, green plateaus and home to Luxembourg’s largest barrier lake. A perfect holiday and getaway destination for hikers and nature lovers.

Moreover, major cultural heritage sites include the numerous castles and manor houses dotted around the region as well as the picturesque centres of small towns such as Vianden, Clervaux and Wiltz.

The LINC EVENT 2017 will be held in the area of VIANDEN from 9-11 of May 2017.

Come and meet your European colleagues and be “linced” again!

We are looking forward to welcome you and hope you enjoy our hospitality and the conference program!
