How can localities benefit from digital growth?
Eoin Costello, Championing 'Digital First Communities' at DigitalHQ clg
We are Ireland's national centre for empowering rural localities and their traditional small businesses to get the most from digital growth.
What we do at our centre?
We help localities and their small businesses leverage digital growth
through three key initiatives:
1. 'Digital First Communities' Living Lab
In our flagship 'Digital First Community' in Dún Laoghaire Town we create and test programmes and frameworks of national significance, identifying what digital tools and techniques work most effectively for attracting investment, remote workers, house buyers, shoppers and visitors to localities and the digitalisation of small, traditional businesses.
2. 'Digital First Communities' Academy
