Replicable Business Models for Modern Rural Economies

RUBIZMO project aims to generate jobs and growth in highly diverse rural areas by stimulating the large-scale deployment of successful, innovative business models in the food sector, bio-based value chains and eco-system services. The project, financed by the European Commission, runs from May 2018 until October 2021.

More information can be found on project's official website.

RUBIZMO objectives:

  • To support modernisation and sustainable growth in rural economies while providing significant potential to create added-value

  • To help communities to become more resilient, and contribute to sustainable use of resources

Gate2Growth's activity in the project:

RUBIZMO will identify 50 successful business cases and 20 new business models, and explore conditions for replication to develop four practical, user-oriented tools:

  • A virtual library of business cases, to inspire and inform potential entrepreneurs about business opportunities

  • Guidelines on creating favourable conditions for the deployment of innovative business models, to help public authorities and rural networks create adequate framework conditions for rural innovation

  • A toolkit for clustering and network development in rural areas

  • A transformation support tool, to help individual entrepreneurs understand which business models are best adapted to their situation, and how to go about implementing change
