Story of digital transformation from Middelfart, DK: KørMed – sustainable transportation and mobility in rural areas
CORA partners share their stories of transformation towards a digital society. The aim of the COME ALONG – sustainable transportation and mobility in rural areas pilot, called KørMed in Danish, was to make ride-sharing easier, greener and more attractive to the inhabitants of the Middelfart Municipality. To make transportation in the countryside smoother using digital solutions, the pilot team planned to support short, local trips in rural areas outside the major cities of the Middelfart Municipality using an IT-based car-sharing platform and provide training and local workshops to enhance take-up of this solution.
For rural and remote areas to stay attractive for families and businesses, they need a healthy digital environment. This requires a digital infrastructure, well-developed digital services, and sufficient digital skills among the population. The CORA partners faced their challenges and tested own solutions designed to bridge the digital divide in their regions.
