Minister for Rural and Community Development, Heather Humphreys, has launched a series of new initiatives designed to support and promote Remote Working across the country through the Phase Two of the Connected Hubs Voucher Scheme.
This second phase will run from 21 September to 31 December 2022 and is aimed at any person registered via ConnectedHubs.ie. "It was fantastic to hear the really excellent feedback from hub managers and users about Phase 1 of the Voucher Scheme. This is all about giving people the opportunity to achieve a much better work-life balance through the benefits of their local digital hub. Under Phase 2, any user of ‘Connected Hubs’ can receive three free vouchers at any stage until the end the year. Hubs have the potential to make a significant impact on rural communities and our regional towns", has mentioned Minister Humphreys.
National Hub Summit
Minister Humphreys has also announced that the National Hub Summit will take place on 24 November in County Roscommon, bringing together hub managers, representative bodies, state agencies and government departments to map out the future of the National Hub Network. “This event will bring together all of the key stakeholders involved in co-working, enterprise, research and development and community hubs around the country to discuss the potential of the National Hub Network to fundamentally change the way many of us work, live and do business”, she added.
