Rural Development

Quality of life in rural areas and diversification of the rural economy is crucial for both development and conservation of the countryside. It is necessary to promote employment and job creation, as well as to improve the quality of life in rural areas. This can be achieved through investment support of supplementary activities on farms, to support the creation and development of micro-companies and to support the development of villages and rural centres, which are primarily important for networking and pooling of local offer and local self-supply and their quality integration into tourism development, as well as tourism-related activities and offer in rural areas.

For the clients we are performing services in the following areas:

  • Smart and competitive rural areas (smart villages, smart farms, innovation and entrepreneurship, business modelling and consulting);
  • Development and branding of rural products;
  • Networking of offer and building sales channels in rural areas;
  • Development of sustainable local food supply chains.
