Initial position / background / local context of the proposed project / the starting situation or local context in which the projects is going to operate

The present project idea is at initial stage of development. We are searching for LAGs from EU wishing to work together for promotion and further implementation of “Smart villages concept” thus making participating LAGs “SMART LAGs” meaning LAGs supporting and implementing “SMART” solutions at local and transnational level.
The concept “Smart villages” is a relatively new and – at least in our region – there isn’t enough information about it. At the same time, it is directed towards rural areas and communities and could significantly contribute for local development.
These are the reasons we would like to work together with other LAGs for analyzing, distribution of information, capacity building and providing Internet platform for exchange of knowledge, information and practices.
