The first Smart Work Centre ”Portes du Morvan”opened in September 2008. It is situated in the town of Lormes in the North/East of the department of the Nievre, in the middle of France. An extension to the Centre will open in late 2014/early 2015

The Smart Work Centre ”Portes du Morvan” currently offers 8 individual offices equipped with suitable furniture plus connection to the high speed broadband network (Ftth fibre-optic 100 Mb).

Since 2003, thanks to innovative initiatives such as the digital passport for all, the Nivernais Morvan district was one of the first territories to take advantage of information and communication technologies to ensure social and economic development via the internet. This pro-active policy continues through labelling the district " Centre of digital rural excellence " and by the creation of a County 2.0 plan, which implies inclusion of the internet in all projects such as economic development, tourism, welcoming of newcomers and of course new ways of managing the working environment.
