RUBIZMO café talks and virtual visits on rural innovation

The RUBIZMO project has studied hundreds of high potential business models and the conditions to make them successful. Partners are now making their insights available for authorities, associations, businesses and entrepreneurs – with an extensive program of online “café talks” and virtual visits open to all.

A first series of quick and easy to access 30-minute “Café sessions” and virtual visits will take place every Tuesday 11-11:30 CET in November 2020 and be repeated in January, February and March 2021. Participants are invited to register online.

The focus for November will be emerging trends and practices around the theme ‘How can Europe anticipate and support rural innovation?’. The leading experts giving actionable insights from Sweden, Germany and Denmark in the first sessions are:

  • 3 November – Per-Anders Langendahl, SLU – Innovation in rural business development: product, process, position, business models… a framework for success
  • 10 November – Gerhard Schiefer, ProQuantis – New rural development opportunities: a focus on food and renewable energy
  • 17 November – Karen Hamann, IFAU – New business ideas and landscapes: inspiration from Denmark
  • 24 November – Virtual visit: Kristineberg Marine Research and Innovation Center, Sweden

The quick sessions are designed to fit in with even the busiest days and anyone attending is invited to hang out for a virtual coffee and ask as many questions as they would like.

Interested participants can register here or find more information on the project website and Twitter and LinkedIn social media channels.
