Short presentation

The concept of the project is to create and test a developed package of products and services that combines local specificities and global trends.


The main goal is to support the smartness of rural settlements, including the development of “smart” communities and the implementation of knowledge transfer, through the development of specific cross-border services.

Contexte (territory issues, targeted audience)

The target area of the project can be characterized as the 'periphery of the periphery' and, despite previous traditional rural development interventions, with deteriorating economic and social indicators at both county and micro-regional levels (eg GDP, unemployment, employment, migration, shrinking communities, inefficient use of natural resources, level of education, added value).
Global cost (in Euros) : 178 692 €
