Helping communities achieve their goals

FERN works as an accelerator for projects and businesses looking to invest and employ people in the countryside using new technology.


FERN serves as a hub for business growth and research on how communities across Europe can harness the power of technology and new ideas for a prosperous future.


Our work aims to engage and work with those who live in and wish to live in the rural environment and help devise ways to improve the current situation across Britain, Ireland and the European continent.


FERN supports the government, local, regional, national and EU policies aimed at increasing participation of community projects in rural and semi-rural locations.
