Digitally enabled and transformed SMEs make rural areas more attractive places to live, work and invest in. Local and regional authorities need the right tools and competencies for supporting rural enterprises in their digital transformation.

COM³ partners develop a unique support model that strengthens and empowers local and regional actors in their role as innovation facilitators and enablers.

Nine COM³ pilot regions in all North Sea Region countries show the way and test the solutions developed by COM³ partners in real use cases.

Welcome to join us on our journey towards tech-enabled and tech-branded rural areas in the North Sea Region!
