1st Innovative Technologies Applied to Rural Regions (ITARR 2020)

Scope

Rural regions, despite having being ignored in the past decade by the majority of government bodies and private organizations, are not the target of a set of innovative initiatives focused on the development of the territories, on the improvement of the use of the existent natural resources and also on the creation of conditions for the migration of populations from the overcrowded urban regions to these rural regions, thus triggering the overall sustainability of the entire country.

By acknowledging the overwhelming power associated with new technologies and their ability to support and aid the implementation of innovative solutions and projects focused on stimulating regional development, it is important to understand the impact that these technologies might have in the development of rural regions that despite having lower development indicators are becoming the centre of attention of a highly specialized group of experts aimed at improving these territories.

Hence, with this workshop we intend to perform and facilitate a profound scientific analysis on the use of innovative technologies in rural regions, namely on its use for the implementation of initiatives focused on the development of endogenous products and services that will improve the populations’ quality of life and the existing organizations’ business activities
