RURBANIVE will establish a novel Rural-Urban innovation framework, supported by technical and social innovations to enhance territorial governance and existing policy tools.

A community store of Rural-Urban Enablers realised through Rural-Urban immersiveness will promote experimentation and innovation focused on building up the well-being economies of rural and urban areas. In addition, a Community of Practice Suite will challenge the current status quo by putting rural citizens at the centre of policy.

Together, they will enable rural-urban interactions through enhanced social connectivity, cooperation, and instant realisation. Participatory processes will support dialogue and cooperation and enable stakeholders to assess and evaluate processes and future scenarios that contribute further to the development of synergies and recommendations.
