The resilience and economic potential of rural territories facing the crisis

This research project aims to propose a framework to analyse the decline (marginalisation) and renewal (integration) of rural territories by seeking to identify the place that companies occupy in this framework, and their effects on the resilience of territories. The objective is to understand what factors affect the decline and renewal of so-called "peripheral" territories, and in particular to cross-reference socio-economic data related to territories with individual company data (innovation, digital, turnover, etc.) in order to identify their specific contributions to territorial dynamics in the "margins".
