This venture is based on the incorporation of cutting edge Web technologies (Semantic Web / Web2.0) in order to increase the efficiency and flexibility of such transactions. In order to achieve such a challenging goal, a highly systematic approach will be carried out, incorporating enhancement of the Web infrastructures of local authorities, rigorous and reusable service process analysis and modeling, and appropriate training of local agents in the effective exploitation of the technology.The semantic services that will be offered by Rural Inclusion platform to facilitate administrative transactions between SME’s and local authorities will be complemented by a number of other Web-based services. These will support the creation of communities of learning and practice in rural settings, facilitating the communication and exchange of knowledge and experience between the rural businesses, as well as with the regional public authorities.
