European initiative RUBIZMO has studied hundreds of high potential business models and the conditions to make them successful. They are now making their insights available for authorities, associations, businesses and entrepreneurs – with an extensive program of online “café talks” and virtual visits open to all.
A first series of quick and easy to access 30-minute “Café sessions” and virtual visits will take place every Tuesday 11-11:30 CET in November 2020 and be repeated in January, February and March 2021. Participants are invited to register online.
The focus for November will be emerging trends and practices around the theme ‘How can Europe anticipate and support rural innovation?’. Leading experts giving actionable insights from Sweden, Germany and Denmark in the first sessions are:
- Innovation in rural business development – a framework for success, Per-Anders Langendahl, SLU (3 November)
- New rural development opportunities: a focus on food and renewable energy, Gerhard Schiefer, ProQuantis (10 November)
- Business ideas and landscapes: inspiration from Denmark, Karen Hamann, IFAU (17 November)
On 24 November a virtual visit to Kristineberg Marine Research and Innovation Centre, Sweden will take place.
The quick sessions are designed to fit in with even the busiest days; but anyone attending is invited to hang out for a virtual coffee and ask as many questions as they would like.
