Through an iterative, participatory process, a final set of 65 Socio-Economic Sustainability Indicators to assess the impact of digitalisation in agriculture, forestry, and rural areas have been created. These indicators were then used in the context of the DESIRA project to qualitatively measure the impact of digitalisation across 21 Living Labs towards the DESIRA sustainability targets.

The final set of SESI presented in this report can be used to monitor and measure the impacts of digitalisation in agriculture, forestry, and rural areas in the DESIRA domains.

Most indicators chosen by LL coordinators for the final set of SESI and therefore most indicators chosen by stakeholders during the assessment were socio-economic. In particular, the impact of digitalisation on the use of digital technologies in small and medium-sized enterprises, value-added to products through digitalisation, data ownership, public image and public acceptance of subjects or products were identified as the most important indicators to assess across the DESIRA LLs.
