Abstract

The development of coworking spaces in rural areas has been the subject of great interest due to the expansion of digital technologies and the rise of new ways of working. They are increasingly seen as drivers of economic and social development. Rural coworking spaces typically host a diversity of professionals from various sectors who seek to reduce their daily commute and reconcile work and quality of life. Most of these spaces are located in converted buildings and provide shared office facilities, business support, and some social interaction that could counterbalance self-isolation experienced at home. The COVID-19 pandemic certainly challenged this model, but it also raised new opportunities given the widespread adoption of remote working. Based on the interviews conducted, it was possible to contribute to a better understanding of the resilience of rural coworking spaces, considering their specificities during the pandemic and their expected future development.
