Unlocking the digital potential of rural areas – research
Rural England CIC and Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC) have launched a research project, supported by Amazon, to explore the economic potential where businesses in rural areas take-up digital opportunities arising from broadband, mobile and other networks.
This project will take an independent look at businesses’ use of digital connectivity, including how they use it, what benefits arise, what barriers they face and what future potential they see, especially if barriers can be overcome.
Take part – Rural Based Businesses Survey
Owners, directors and managers from rural based businesses across the UK are invited to take part in a survey, hosted for us by YouGov. This forms a key part of the project. Responses will be accepted up to 1st September and will be treated in confidence.
