This is the main report of the first meeting of the ENRD Thematic Group on 'Smart and Competitive Rural Areas'.
It overviews the diverse working topics under the heading 'Smart': agriculture, supply chains and villages, as well as the differing needs, challenges and approaches to adding value.

News and updates covered by the spring 2015 edition of Rural Connections include the new ENRD Contact Point 2014-2020, an update from EIP-AGRI and the first ever Rural Networks' Assembly.

The "Rural issues, Rural perspectives" section features stakeholder voices speaking about topics ranging from community-led local development to a new cross-party rural group in the European Parliament and from transnational co-operation projects to the first ever Scottish Rural Parliament.

This edition also features “A Focus On…” stakeholder involvement, with reports from Northern Ireland on engaging women in the RDP and from Spain on developing forest management collectives.

This publication highlights how ICT is being used as an essential tool for unlocking the potential of rural areas, making them more attractive places to live, work and visit.
