3 March 2021 - Comments Off on Register your start-up on the REInA platform
REInA (Rural European Innovation Area) is a pan-European open platform which aims to gather innovative initiatives to support the creation of a new Rural European Innovation Area.
The objective of REInA is to be the loudspeaker for European rural area voices, pushing their development, growth, business and natural resources by a fair, green and sustainable management. The created dynamic, pan-European community led by corporates, with support from EU and level decision makers, that will work together to close the gap between rural areas and big cities. REInA will also present relevant challenges, calls, contests and other actions, all of them related to rural and territorial verticals.
REInA covers a wide range of sectors and activities under the rural umbrella, going from the most classic and well-known ones such as agri-food, livestock, tourism, crafts, etc. to others of great importance such as connectivity and telecommunications, as well as everything related to energy, energy transition, climate, sustainability, water, mobility, etc.
On the other hand, all sectors that help to improve the quality of life of citizens and entrepreneurs in rural areas, often related to services with potential digital interaction such as healthcare (telemedicine), education and content and security.
In terms of technologies, artificial intelligence (deep-tech), drones, robotics, blockchain, etc. play a very important role in order to automate many repetitive tasks in rural areas, facilitating the traceability of processes or helping to create safer spaces in which to create businesses.
The start of the platform will be celebrated with a launch event.
