Projects & Practice
The Digitally Visiting project has pioneered digital skill development in Central Finland. The project has demonstrated that there is a large need for local digital support to develop residents’ digital skills, especially in remote rural regions. The project encouraged and guided rural residents to use electronic services and so has contributed to making rural living in Central Finland more appealing.
The project has created entirely new operating models to improve the well-being of agricultural entrepreneurs and how they can cope with difficulties.
