As one of the most willing authority in Europe in terms of supporting the development of rural coworking, the Irish government launches a 5 Mio € support call to boost coworking in the countryside. Dublin plans to fund remote hubs in rural towns and villages over the next two years as part of a State strategy on remote working. This ambitious policy worries some of the private co working operators, though.
