The promotion and support of new technologies has been considered as an opportunity to improve the coastal regions development and the fishermen profitability. This rural living lab tries to contribute with tools based on new technologies in order to support and to stimulate this sector. Cudillero Rural Living Lab is a local but open initiative for the economical and social promotion of the rural area through a new methodology for innovation that is working all around Europe and world.

References and Track Record

Cudillero Rural Living Lab main goal is to offer technical support and services to users involved in fishing industry in order to facilitate their daily tasks using the collaborative environment supported by the platform proposed in C@R. Cudillero Rural Living Lab will serve to develop applications based on collaborative technologies to improve processes for being developed in small vessels devoted to the “hake fished by hook” fishing art. The applications are intended to include functionalities to manage alerts on board, catches reports and technologies for collaboration on board-on shore. Cudillero is taken in the context of C@R as an example to implement this collaborative environment with the final idea of spreading it out to the rest of rural areas in the coast with similar characteristics. Cudillero Rural Living Lab is mainly supported by the Entrecabos-Valle del ESE local action group, by the Fisheries Department of the Principality of Asturias, the “Virgen del Carmen” fishers Association and the Cudillero local authorities. With the aim of cement the importance, visibility and sustainability of this rural living lab, it was included in the second wave of the European Network of Living Labs (ENoLL) for the sake of participating in the shared of knowledge, expertises and good practices on the application of this methodology. Cudillero Rural Living Lab is one of the candidates to take part in the future Spanish Network of Living Labs.
