Rural Development seminar in Mikkeli

Finnish Mamba –partners; Regional Council of South Ostrobothnia, South Ostrobothnia Health Technology Development Centre and Regional Council of North Karelia participated in the Rural Development seminar in Mikkeli where we had a project presentation and thematic discussions with rural-transport-experts.

The seminar took place from the 30th until the 31st of August, 2018, and was useful in many ways. We had the chance to present the Mamba project and also learnt about other similar projects ongoing in Finland. As a result, we have been in close contact with Regional Council of South Savo who are developing rural transport solutions in their area together with The Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra. Their aim is to have transport service finalized in autumn 2019 and there are definitely lessons to be learned as our regional structures are very similar to them.
