Towards A SmarT Rural Europe

(Septembre 2013-  Septembre 2017)


The project intends to identify issues and forms of smart development of rural and peri-urban areas, and their relationships with urban dynamics, given the diversity of local configurations. This goal will also require examining the contribution of public policy and governance patterns as a consistent and innovative means of intervention to support smart development of rural areas.
We will provide local stakeholders and policy makers with dedicated tools, in order to transfer scientific knowledge to the managers of the European rural and peri-urban areas. These tools are intended to contribute to a Smart, inclusive and diverse European Rural development.
