The European Startup Village Forum is part of the flagship action on research and innovation for rural communities, included in the Long-Term Vision for the EU’s rural areas set out by the European Commission in 2021.

The Forum aims to promote knowledge exchange and cooperation activities and to work as an open space where institutions and stakeholders can meet, discuss and shape action for startup-driven innovation in rural areas.

A call for pledges has been launched to gather the commitment of public and private organisations to support the objectives of the Forum through the implementation of activities on the ground. This call is open for pledges that can offer financial but also in-kind support, such as provision of co-working spaces, IT infrastructure or expertise, coaching, mentoring or training, aiming at creating startups and job opportunities in rural areas.
