The Policy Learning Platform is organising a peer review for the Aragon region in Spain, to support the digitalisation of agri-food and forestry sectors in rural and depopulated areas, hosted by the Instituto Aragonés de Fomento (IAF).
IAF is a public regional development agency, linked to Industry Competitiveness and Business Development Department of the Government of Aragon.
To address this challenge, IAF is focusing on key enabling technologies and ICT including digitalization and upgrading of traditional economic sectors such as agri-food or forestry. However, the stimulation of business around these opportunities requires the implementation of well-defined measures.
Several European peers as well as thematic experts from the Policy Learning Platform team will be leading the peer review with the objective to provide advice from other regional and local governments across Europe dealing with depopulation regarding the improvement and implementation of these measures.
The peer review will take place between 22 and 29 September with 4 online sessions. The sessions are on invite only but a follow-up report will be made available following the meeting.
