COnnecting Remote Areas with digital infrastructure and services
CORA revolves around stimulating digital infrastructure and services in rural areas and comprises a transnational consortium with 18 partners from 7 European member states. It aims at enabling local authorities to identify their common challenges and empowers them to exchange experiences and test innovative solutions to create an advanced digital environment. CORA partners develop a model, which provides a comprehensive set of guiding measures towards digitalization in rural areas. It employs fixed and mobile digital hub concepts for providing in-place advice, technology demonstration and incubator spaces. Built on training the trainer, face-to-face and online training concepts will be tested to enhance digital skills. Until 2020, 10 regions will demonstrate one or more dimensions of digitization depending on their baselines and local priorities. The results will be utilized to formulate digital strategies for rural areas to be streamlined to the regional, national and European authorities and influence EU digital inclusion policy.
