Third meeting of the Rural Digitalisation Forum15 November, 2022 - 9:00 am - 15 November, 2022 - 1:00 pm
Policies blocking or boosting digital transformation will play a pivotal role in the future of agriculture, forestry and rural areas. Different policy documents and strategies highlight both the significant impacts that digitisation and disruptive technologies might have in rural areas, and the challenges and impacts of these technologies in the EU territories.
DESIRA is developing a Policy Roadmap that addresses the main obstacles and policy gaps identified and aligns the digital game changers in agriculture, forestry and rural life to societal needs. It will propose building blocks and policy pathways to support smart, inclusive and sustainable digitisation of rural areas, focusing on integrating the RRI approach and Sustainable Development Goals in the policy process.
During the 3rd Rural Digitalisation Forum meeting, participants will support the identification of policy gaps and areas needing attention, as well as the necessary actions to foster digitisation in rural areas.
