Abstract: Paper’s objective(s): The aim of this paper is to summarize the smart development concepts from the professional literature available and to discover the resources that are the most commonly used as a basis for such development strategies. The target regions are along the Hungarian-Slovakian border, since they are the least-developed regions and at the moment they are very far from the existing smart development concepts.
Data/Methods: In this paper we intend to use desk research, we intend to give an overview on the smart development concepts in Europe including the target countries. In order to do this, we will do document and literature analysis. In addition, we intend to collect statistical data to see the current economic and social condition of the target areas and intend to find out whether these regions have the required resources to apply any type of smart development strategy.
Results/Conclusions: The results can be very useful from regional and rural development point of view especially for the policy makers, since smart concepts are getting more and more popularity all over Europe, but such disadvantaged areas are far from being ready for such concepts, resulting even higher territorial differences. It would be necessary to define the minimum requirements and alternative ways for smart village strategies so that the rural areas could catch up with the more developed regions.
