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.
The Rural Broadband project is a national intervention to close the digital divide in remote and sparsely populated rural ‘white areas’.
A company producing rye gin and whiskey used RDP support to increase its production capacity to meet the demand of national and international markets.
A marketing project to promote the high-quality Finnish oats to the international market and increase the income of small farms.
