Projects & Practice
A Finnish NGO used EAFRD funds to develop a network of nature-based service providers and activities to support their development such as study trips and work groups.
Three Finnish artists used EAFRD funding to transform a remote former school in rural Finland into a residence for international artists, now the largest in all Scandinavia.
A business network used LEADER funding to provide an alternative source of business support to rural communities through local people with relevant knowledge and contacts.
In a rural area that is rather disadvantaged and in risk of abandonment, EAFRD and ESF support were combined in a project for the integration of migrants through work training.
An integration coordinator was hired to help refugees mostly from Myanmar and Syria with language, housing, education, employment etc issues.
A small Finnish start-up company developed nutritional supplements based on traditional herbs and plants from Lapland.
