AURORAL started in January 2021 and it is estimated to end on December 31st 2024. AURORAL contributes to increase economic growth and create jobs in rural areas to increase connectivity and digitization by cost-efficient and flexible cross-domain applications through large-scale pilots in five European regions.

It builds on an open, API-based, interoperable and federated Internet of Things (IoT) architecture and includes a reference implementation supporting flexible integration of heterogeneous services, bridging the interoperability gap of the smart object platforms and creating markets for services in rural areas.
