MDI camped out with rural developers in Kainuu

MDI set up a three-day innovation camp in Sopen tupa, Kajaani August 15-17, 2013. Regions of Kainuu and Northern Ostrobothnia joined the innovation camp as a start-up for a series of five regional innovation camps. There was a large and diverse group of actors from two provinces working together and brainstorming new ideas and operation models for the development of rural areas. Ideas were developed in five pre-defined themes. MDI was appointed for the work by the Rural Network Unit of the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry.
