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.
Given that empirically substantiated studies are still lacking, LIVERUR’s short-term objective is to improve knowledge of business models that grow in rural areas, including the understanding of their potential. In the long term, the project will increase the potential for rural economic diversification.

LIVERUR aims to expand an extremely innovative business model called Living Labs among rural regions. Living laboratories are ecosystems of open innovation, centered on the user, which often operate in a territorial context, integrating concurrent research and innovation processes within a public-private partnership.
