Smart Villages: Participate in the consultation on the definition and share your good practices

The concept of “Smart Villages” is gaining more and more attention at EU level and is likely to play a role in future policy. In light of this, a Pilot Project has been launched on smart eco-social villages or “Smart Villages” in short. The aim of the Pilot Project is to explore strategies to become a “Smart Village” and refine a definition to clarify what a “Smart Village” is or can be.

Within the EU Action for Smart Villages published by the European Commission together with the European Parliament, “Smart Villages” have been described as “rural areas and communities which build on their existing strengths and assets as well as on developing new opportunities”, where “traditional and new networks and services are enhanced by means of digital, telecommunication technologies, innovations and the better use of knowledge”.

If you wish to participate in the shaping of the Smart Villages definition, now is the right time. You just need to fill in this form before 27th April.

In addition, if you wish to share good practices on social and digital innovation in rural areas on topics such as health, quality of life, connectivity, education and culture, energy, environment, mobility, you can share them by filling in this form.

For more information, do not hesitate to contact the coordinator of this project at Smart.Villages@ecorys.com
