The Startup Village Forum is part of a larger vision for rural areas in the EU. The vision, set out by the European Commission in 2021, identifies several areas of action toward stronger, connected, resilient and prosperous rural areas and communities by 2040. It includes a flagship action on Research and Innovation for Rural Communities aiming at contributing to the development of a strong ecosystem. This brings together public and private players for rural communities to thrive, and be an attractive place for innovators to work and live.

In this context, the annual European Startup Village Forum promotes knowledge exchange and cooperation activities. It works like an open space, where institutions and stakeholders can meet, discuss and shape action for startup-driven innovation in rural areas.

The full event can be followed via livestream.
