Short presentation

Experimentation carried out on the Community of Communes Alpes Provence Verdon, to boost the local economy and improve the daily life of the inhabitants.


At the end of the reflections carried out within the framework of the thematic working groups, nearly 40 proposals/ideas were formulated and structured around 4 main objectives:

- Strengthening digital infrastructures
- Creating a digital culture on the territory
- Creating and enhancing digital access places
- To create shared tools to serve the actors of the territory.

Contexte (territory issues, targeted audience)

Since 2018, in order to help the region meet the challenge of the digital transition, the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur Region, the Community of Communes Alpes Provence Verdon and the Alpes de Haute-Provence Development Agency, with the support of the Regional Rural Network, have been working on an experimental project entitled: "Smart rurality Alpes Provence Verdon".

Through this approach, the aim is to create a network of actors and to test a method that can be transferred to other territories in Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur. Based on a prospective diagnosis of the territory, the objective is to enable stakeholders to take ownership of the issues of digital transition, define a digital strategy for the territory and identify support actions.
