ENRD Seminar on ‘Revitalising Rural Areas through Business Innovation’

30th of March 2017, Brussels
Summary compiled by Kristiina Tammets

The Seminar explored how rural businesses – both farm and non-farm – can innovate in ways that “create the conditions for future prosperity and vitality” as articulated in the Cork 2.0 Declaration. Specifically, the event:

  • - examined a range of EU policies and tools for business innovation, including digitisation, smart specialisation, and social innovation;
  • - showcased inspiring examples of rural business innovation and explored how such initiatives can be supported and extended through the Rural Development Programmes.

The event was part of the broader ENRD thematic work on 'Smart and Competitive Rural Businesses'.
