The goals of the Rural 3.0 project are to:
- help develop the core skills and entrepreneurial capabilities of the rural community (for which such development is not easily accessible)
- improve the quality of education for a sustainable development and promote university-community partnerships in the rural areas through the innovative service-learning methodology
- increase the relevance of universities as their students aim to fulfill a service that is in line with the demands of the rural businesses and social needs in rural areas
- establish a virtual Hub with a broad network of academic and rural stakeholders that will offer teaching and learning content (dedicated transnational academic module with courses on service-learning and social entrepreneurship, community training materials and digital collaborative & learning tools) and will promote interactions between universities and rural community stakeholders.
