Replicable business models for modern rural economies

Challenge: Creating new business opportunities in rural areas is a necessity for Europe to meet a wide range of economic, environmental and social challenges.

Solution: The RUBIZMO project will foster sustainable growth and job creation in rural areas by discovering the vital ingredients for developing entrepreneurship and successful business models in high potential sectors such as food and agriculture, new bio-based value chains and services. The key ingredients will be shared across Europe through a set of practical tools supporting collaboration, entrepreneurship and business development in rural communities.

Duration: May 2018 – October 2021
