LIVERUR aims to support businesses, projects and initiatives in designing innovative business models in rural areas, moving towards a Circular Economy and including all important stakeholders by following the Living Lab approach.
LIVERUR conducts socio-economic analyzes to identify, describe and compare the differences between the new approach of Living Lab and more entrepreneurial traditional approaches (mass production, development of prices, optimizing cost structures with companies, rationalization).
RAIN (RegionAl cIrcular liviNg lab business model concept) is a new business model concept, designed specifically for the rural context and taking into account regional characteristics. RAIN is comprehensive as it combines theories on Living Labs, Circular Economy and other concepts.
