The project analyses the integration of digital methods in processes of rural regional development. Therefore, the effects of digitization and mediatization on communication methods, social organization and institutions in these processes are examined and we study how analog and digital formats and procedures can be combined. The findings lead to recommendations for action and policy to strengthen the effectiveness of rural regional development processes. More about the project here.

In this project I collaborate with the Institute for Rural Development Research at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe-University of Frankfurt/Main. The project is funded by the Federal Office for Agriculture and Food (funding no: 2820FD011 B).
