The corona eruption led to "care digitisation" in rocket speed in Østre Toten
- We wanted to prevent the experience of chaos and fear, says project manager in Østre Toten municipality, André Alves. When the pandemic was a fact in Norway as well, and a large number of inhabitants needed quick and safe assistance, Nyby became part of the contingency plan.
- With a “self-organized Unenployment Office”, qualified resources with available capacity can register in the resource pool, where e.g. the farmers outsource various paid work tasks. The parties then enter into an agreement, and that's it!
