The event, hosted in the framework of the European Rural Digitalisation Forum (RDF), gathered around 70 participants to discuss the role of digitalisation in the EU’s Long-Term Vision for Rural Areas, and the policy support needed to ensure that digitalisation leads to the sustainable development of rural areas.

Digitalisation will have a key role in shaping the future of agriculture, forestry and rural areas and DESIRA has contributed to the long-term vision by capitalising on the knowledge produced in the project.

Through a participatory process led by AEIDL, the project gathered the views of experts on how digital technologies can contribute to build desirable futures for rural areas by 2040.
