DESIRA will develop the concept of Socio-Cyber-Physical Systems to advance understanding of the
impact of digitisation in rural areas, linking analysis directly to the United Nation's Sustainable
Development Goals. Operationalising the Responsible Research and Innovation approach, DESIRA
will enrol agriculture, forestry and rural stakeholders in co-developing scenarios and policies in Living
Labs established in 20 European Regions, and a Rural Digitization Forum gathering 250 stakeholders
from all Europe. A Virtual Research Environment tailored to the purposes of the project will connect all participants
and allow to increase substantially the interaction within the network.


DESIRA will provide a Taxonomy and Inventory of Digital Game changers which will be implemented into an online
Visualization Tool, a Set of Socio-Economic Impact Indicators aligned to the Sustainability Development Goals
implemented into an online Socio-Economic Impact Tool, a Pan-European Assessment of digitization in European
rural regions, a Needs, Expectations and Impact appraisal report, a Comparative Scenario Report based on scenario
development activities of Living Labs and the Rural Digitization Forum.
