The project aimed to support rural communities in developing smart village strategies and implementing smart actions across Europe. E40 Europe was responsible for the overall coordination of the project, including supporting villages in their smart actions, organisation of various events and exchanges, analytical work and communication tasks. E40 Communications coordinated smart solutions case studies and supported communication tasks (including social media). For more information contact: E40 Europe.
