The meeting, held on the 28th of April, provided a platform for in-depth discussions on various key topics.

Along with the technical discussions, one of the focal points of the meeting was the organisation Annual Living Labs (LLs) Workshops, which will aim to foster a comprehensive understanding of the project’s scope, explore the potential of digitalisation within CODECS, and identify opportunities for collaboration and further exploration among the Living Labs. They also worked on the knowledge transfer from DESIRA Living Labs.

The meeting in Brussels showcased the commitment of CODECS partners to actively contribute to the project’s success and take the baton of rural digitalisation after the finalisation of DESIRA. Through robust discussions, knowledge sharing, and collaborative exercises, the partners paved the way for future advancements in sustainable digitalisation within the CODECS framework.

As the CODECS project progresses, these workshops and meetings serve as crucial platforms for nurturing exchange, collaboration, and progress. The partners remain dedicated to fostering a vibrant digital ecosystem, while leveraging the collective expertise and resources to address the challenges and seize the opportunities that lie ahead.

With the CODECS project gaining momentum, the partners are poised to make significant contributions towards the advancement of digital transformation in rural communities.
