Smart Village SUN

»Smart Village« ecosystem of smart sustainability and circular economy in rural areas.

A »smart« rural settlement for 100 inhabitants is being built in the midst of the pristine Koroška region. It is being built with sustainable materials without waste and it will be upgraded with state-of-the-art digital technology. In a hybrid environment, we will physically and virtually connect global stakeholders who want to participate in the innovative development of the necessary system changes for the green transition.

The »Unique selling proposition« (USP) of the Smart Village Sun project introduces the “Space as a Service” model, which is a combination of an exceptional living experience, work and research in the natural environment of Smart Village Sun and its surroundings. The project connects the physical environment with virtual, communicational, collaborative, project, research, consulting and educational environments. This enables global inclusiveness and the opportunity for the cooperation of numerous stakeholders from all over the world in real-time (virtual world).

Smart Village SUN will serve as a representative model village and a development and demonstration playground for the development of mobile factories, which will specialize in the construction of a large number of similar settlements situated in the vicinity of sustainable building materials (wood and other bio-based materials) and near smart villages.
