to Smart Village Scotland
What is a SMART Village?
Smart Villages connect people in rural areas, supporting new and existing enterprises and creating a network of digital champions – all working together to build a vibrant, creative and sustainable rural economy in Scotland.
A Smart Village is a super connected community, either based around a settlement, a cluster of settlements or a community of interest. We stretch the traditional term village, so a Smart Village can range in size from a hamlet to a small town.
