Dr Shane Conway, Researcher in the Discipline of Geography's Rural Studies Unit has recently been selected as Ireland's National Expert on a new two and a half-year project supported by the European Commission (DG AGRI) entitled 'Smart Rural 21'. This project aims to promote and inspire villages to develop and implement smart village approaches and strategies across Europe, and to draw conclusions and support future CAP interventions on smart villages. 17 villages are selected across Europe to receive guidance and technical support through the project. 5 villages have already been selected in Ireland (Dingle, Co. Kerry), Finland, France, the Czech Republic and Greece, and a further 12 villages will be selected up until the 5th of May 2020.

Rural communities can submit their expression of interest to participate in this project here.
