In the RUREMPLO project employment dynamics in leading and lagging rural regions of the EU have been analyzed. This resulted in a series of research findings that are relevant for the future design and delivery of rural development policies in Europe. These findings are presented in this paper. Starting points in the RUREMPLO project were the territorial approach and the field of force analysis of rural regions. Against this background RUREMPLO findings have to be interpreted. The findings are summarized under the following four headings: stimulating economic activities and innovation, matching labour supply and demand, enhancing infrastructure and amenities and mobilizing local initiatives and networks.
