PoliRural is a research project funded by the European Commission aiming at understanding how rural areas can attract more people for living, work and investments.

PoliRural aims to create a reusable framework built around participatory principles, stakeholder knowledge, big data and advanced analytics that will allow to deliver more accurate foresight for rural regions and contribute to new enhanced policy interventions.

PoliRural H2020 Project selected 12 Pilot areas to test the project methodology in different climate, geography, topography, social and economic conditions. These areas are building a community of interest around each pilot and have engaged many different stakeholders with direct knowledge and experience of the region.
