On the second place, as the coordinator of CODECS, Gianluca Brunori contributed to the SHERPA Final Conference. During the second day, he took part in the sessions titled “Contribution to the wider policy framework”, which aimed to explore the potential policy implications of the SHERPA project and its findings. With his expertise in rural development and a passion for connected rural areas, Brunori delivered a compelling pitch on the importance of fostering connectivity and participation in rural regions. By actively participating in this session, Brunori effectively conveyed the significance of inclusive policy frameworks that consider the unique needs and challenges faced by rural communities.
