Best wishes for 2019!

Hanging on to hope and staying mobilised, despite everything… At the beginning of January the Groupe URD team gathered together, as it does every year, in the hills of the ‘Drôme provençale’, in our ‘eagle’s nest’ in the ‘Baronnies’ region, to review the activities of the past year and prepare the year ahead. Together, we discussed our different research and evaluation projects, analysed the principle changes in the sector, admired the new website and e-learning platform that will soon be made public, took stock of the projects to come and began to work on our strategy for the years ahead.
