Indirect support:

There is no direct support for Smart Villages, however there is a number of strategies and funding streams supporting smart and innovative solutions, including projects implemented by municipalities (local councils).

Interreg: ThreeT project (1 Jun 2018 to 30 Nov 2022) focused on improving the performance of eight policy instruments to protect and enhance natural and cultural heritage. It set up thematic trails or improved existing ones, making them accessible to all through green modes of transport and readily available information (including smart solution/technology). The ultimate aim was to maximise the eco-tourism potential of heritage sites by implementing an Action Plan. Several Maltese local councils – including rural – participated in the project.

Digital Malta is the national Information Communication Technology Strategy. It provides a vision for “a digitally enabled country empowering its people, communities and entrepreneurs through the intelligent and universal use of ICT”. It is about making citizens’ lives better, improving community services and helping enterprises to flourish and become more competitive through ICT.

The Strategy is built upon three vertical pillars: citizens; business; and government, and supported by a suite of enabling/driving forces: regulation and legislation; infrastructure; and human capital.
