Digitalisation is present in all areas of life. Sustainable smart solution models for living and working in rural areas differ in several aspects from solution models that are applied within the framework of smart city concepts. At first glance, digitalisation offers many possibilities. But how can these models be effectively put into practice, and what can politics and administration do to ensure that people benefit from the opportunities of digitalisation?

The SmartVillages project, which unites 13 project partners in six Alpine countries, has been dealing with these questions of a digital transformation in rural areas since April 2018. The SmartVillages final conference aims to present the project results, especially the pilot activities, the “digital exchange platform” (DEP) and the “SmartVillages Charter”.
