Welcome to the CORA project (COnnecting Remote Areas with digital infrastructure and services). Closing the digital divide

Digital divide across rural areas of the North Sea Region is limiting their attractiveness for families and businesses. The proper digital infrastructure does not exist. Digital skills are not developed enough. Local authorities are often not aware of their future-coming digital needs and end-users have limited skills to create an effective level of demand.

Against this background, the CORA project stimulates digital infrastructure, services and skills in rural areas with a total budget of 3.845.736€ from which 50% are co-financed by the Interreg North Sea Region Programme. The CORA partnership comprises a transnational consortium of 18 partners from seven European member states. CORA partners help local authorities to identify their common challenges and empower them to exchange experiences, test innovative solutions and create an advanced digital environment. To do so, CORA emphasizes the main components of digital divide, namely lack of digital infrastructure, services and skills.
