Reducing Inequality
'Rurban' Regions appear to be underserved when it comes to leveraging modern technology to cope with typical challenges these regions are facing. In Rurban Regions typically more densely populated settlements and cities are 'loosely' dispersed in rural areas.

Many of these challenges are directly related to declining social, economic, and environmental well-being in combination with socio-demographic developments like a greying society and wishes of youngsters to move to larger cities.

Zero Hunger
Today, the vast majority of people in our country live in cities and because of this, they have lost their connection to the countryside and agriculture. The knowledge of modern agriculture is also scarce and therefore many people cannot understand how food is produced and how different aspects are connected and dependent upon each other within the agrifood system. We would like to change this.
