The AURORAL project focuses on increasing connectivity and providing a digital environment of interoperable service platforms capable of favoring the creation and development of dynamic rural ecosystems, innovation chains, applications and services relevant to the empowerment of communities and nature preservation.
AURORAL contributes to increasing economic growth and creating jobs and to addressing significant social challenges. The vision of AURORAL focuses on the balance between rural and urban areas by developing the potential offered by increasing connectivity and digitalization of predominantly rural regions. The AURORAL digital environment is demonstrated through large-scale pilot regions in five European Union Member States.
AURORAL is funded by the H2020 programme, led by the Alentejo Region, to implement the European ambition to increase the multi-interoperability of European digital environments, making them smarter, fairer and more open, thus promoting the generalization of "Smart Communities".
