Minister for Rural and Community Development, Heather Humphreys, will officially launch the national Connected Hubs Showcase Day that will include a series of open day initiatives on the 26th of April, Wednesday. On the day, hubs across the Connected Hubs network will display the incredible variety and regional diversity with a focus on promoting why their hub and locality are great places for remote workers. This open day is taking place in support of the Government’s national campaign promoting Remote Work and is likely to become an annual event in the Connected Hubs calendar.   

"When I launched ‘Our Rural Future’, the most ambitious and transformational policy for rural development in decades, I set an ambitious goal to have 400 remote working hubs nationwide by 2025. We are well on track to exceed that target with 315 Hubs already on the national Connected Hubs network", commented Minister Humphreys.   

Connected Hubs is a flagship initiative led by Minister Humphreys and the Department of Rural and Community Development and implemented by the Western Development Commission. The initiative will connect and deepen the remote working infrastructure across rural Ireland. One of the aims of the Connected Hubs initiative is to create a shared platform and brand and to raise awareness of hubs, the services they offer and the opportunities to relocate to, or establish a business from anywhere in Ireland, as well as developing and raising awareness of hubs as convenient and professional distributed workplaces.
