Leaders of the national science academies of the European member states, together with Academia Europea and ALLEA (All European Academies) formed a new independent body, European Academies' Science Advisory Council (EASAC) in 2001. The aim of the Council is to provide authoritative scientific judgement to the policy makers of the European Union on a wide variety of topics (environment, agriculture, energy, fisheries, health and food safety). EASAC currently has a membership of 16 academies from the 15 EU member states, plus Academia Europaea and ALLEA.

This summary of key findings and recommendations of the Smart Villages Initiative over the period 2014–2017 is intended to inform policy-makers and development organisations in the European Union concerned with rural development in Africa, Asia and Latin America. It draws on a detailed report of the findings (Holmes, 2017), which in turn provides links to the wealth of underpinning material generated by the Smart Village Initiative’s engagement programmes and research over the 3-year period (available at www.e4sv.org).
