“Smart villages” is a relatively new concept that aims to help rural communities meet challenges and
grasp the new opportunities of the 21st century. The Preparatory Action on Smart Rural Areas in the 21st Century project marks the start of a new phase in the implementation of the smart villages concept. The project aims to promote the take-up of the concept across the EU, both locally and in terms of policy. It is helping 17 selected villages across Europe develop and implement smart village strategies.

The session will combine (1) introductory presentations about the project from the project coordinator (Edina
Ocsko, E40) and the state of play of the smart village policy framework from DG AGRI (to be confirmed) and (2) presentations from selected participant villages on the development of their smart village strategy and activities. Working groups will be organised based on specific smart village themes, led by the selected village representatives and supported by project experts.
