Press Release − 14 Feb 2023
Get from €60,000 up to €120,000 to replicate the dRural platform in your region. Apply by 13 April 2023.
dRural aims to expand its concept, demonstrating its benefits and impacts beyond the current consortium.
Therefore, the project will select 8 regions from outside the consortium to act as “Mirror Regions“, replicating the dRural platform in new places.
These regions will be represented by public or private entities interested in providing new rural services or improving the services currently offered.
The overall goal of the dRural Open Call for Mirror Regions is to boost innovation and development of rural regions by stimulating, coordinating and engaging new stakeholders to provide added-value services to people and businesses.
The winning Mirror Region will receive training and 1 to 1 coaching at technical, business and ecosystem building levels.
They will also receive up to €120,000 in funding to do a full-scale implementation in their local language, replicating the process followed by the dRural demonstrator, while avoiding initial pitfalls by following best practices, lessons learnt and success stories.
