SkäriHUB – co-working and wellbeing for microenterprises in Turku archipelago

The main goal of the SkäriHUB project is to find out with the pilots what kind of concept SkäriHUB operating in the archipelago meets the needs of the co-working facilities of micro-entrepreneurs and hybrid workers in the archipelago. How should SkäriHUB's operations be organized, so that it is an accessible, community-based working environment for the archipelago's entrepreneurs and hybrid workers and promotes inclusion, networking, productivity and well-being at work.

The project identifies and verifies

  1. the (multi-site) space solutions required for efficient and well-beingpromoting work of micro-entrepreneurs and hybrid workers, and determines the services needed in the premises
  2. tests the organization and forms of business and digital skills support as part of the SkäriHUB service concept and
  3. tests service packages that promote well-being at work for micro-entrepreneurs and hybrid workers.
