Collaboration@Rural : A collaborative platform for working and living in rural areas

Objective

C@R aims to boost the introduction of Collaborative Working Environments (CWE) as key enablers catalyzing rural development. According to this strategic goal, C@R proposes a complete set of research activities and tasks which will identify, develop and validate technological responses to actual barriers jeopardizing the sustainable development in rural areas.

To achieve this prior objective C@R will research on the specification, development, test and validation of a powerful and flexible worker-centric collaborative platform that will significantly enhance the capabilities of rural inhabitants both @work and @life, thus leading to a better quality of life and a revalorisation of rural settings.

A key piece of C@R model is the upper layer middleware architecture, or C@RA, which combines in a sinergyc manner collaborative core components according to orchestration high level capabilities resulting in a set of software tools. C@R will work on the definition of a user-centric Open Service Architecture.

C@R will articulate Rural Living Labs (RLL) as innovative research instruments involving rural users. The RLL user-oriented methodology will guarantee to meet the highly specific rural users' expectations and will provide mechanisms to gather technical requirements for the C@RA. Innovative scenarios with an expected high impact on rural development have been selected to enable a later validation of the C@RA.

C@R will deepen on the impact of collaborative technologies in the rural economic and social backbones by means of a well structured methodology to assess the impact of the technologies developed on the indicators of rural developments and provide policy responses at national, European, and global levels.
