This publication is based on a virtual meeting of rural coworking experts from across Europe, which took place in late May 2021. Experts from Czech Republic, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain and Switzerland shared their experiences about the rural Coworking development in their countries. Backround and basis for the conference were the results of a German trend study which had been undertaken on behalf of the Bertelsmann Stiftung by Coworkland eG with the support of Netzwerk Zukunftsorte (Rural Coworking - People, Models, Trends) published in winter 2020. This publication offered a detailed insight into the typologies of users, founders, and business models of new places of work in rural areas in Germany. The aim of the Europe-wide exchange was to compare the findings of the German trend study with those in other parts of Europe - to learn from each other and to stimulate coworking initiatives in further regions.

Das Projekt hatte zum Ziel, Unternehmen und Betriebe für den Umgang mit der Digitalisierung zu sensibilisieren. Damit einhergehend sollte eine Ahnung von der digital bedingten Disruption bestehender Geschäftsmodelle entwickelt werden. Aus der Projektlaufzeit sind neben einer Vielzahl von Fallstudien und Handlungsempfehlungen auch ein Online-Self-Assessment-Tool, ein Film und ein Blog entstanden.
