The Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture
The Federal Ministry of Agriculture supports the regional development and implementation of individual future concepts.
The pilot project was designed to counter the demographic change in underdeveloped rural regions, but it also aims at increasing the regional value creation and supporting the local job market.
By establishing a regional development office, Neunkirchen County supports the implementation and integration of the pilot project in all cities and municipalities of the Saarland.
As a regional location office, saaris - saarland.innovation&standort e.V. operates as the project carrier for the Neunkirchen Welcome Center within the “Land(auf)Schwung” pilot project.
