The project - communicative social research "Formation of the Inhabitant's Regional Networks for Knowledge and Open Dialogue", by the Baltic Institute of Social Sciences, aims to stimulate the social, economic and political activities of inhabitants. For a half-year period, entrepreneurs and farmers participated in discussions over the European Union fund acquisition, their future intentions with respect to the fund acquisition and overall experiences. The design of the project followed a bottom-up model of policy development. The entrepreneurs and farmers were also invited to discuss these matters with decision makers hailing from various levels as well as social partners. Initially, local discussions were held by the Baltic Institute of Social Sciences in order to learn the effect these EU funds had over entrepreneurs un farmer's lives. With every subsequent project stage, higher levels of decision makers and opinion makers were involved in discussions that faciliatated debate and helped identify barriers to the EU funding acquisition.
