Ten municipalities in the Helsinki Region North (a.k.a. Central Uusimaa) have organised their regional co-operation in key development themes through KUUMA co-operation concept. In 2016, the evaluation for current council period of 2013–2016 will be carried out. MDI is involved in the evaluation work, the underlying data is collected by the Laurea University of Applied Sciences. MDI will participate in two focus group discussions organised by Laurea in the spring. During the summer, MDI facilitates discussions with key stakeholders, as well as collects relevant background material. The interpretations will be made in the autumn. MDI’s main task is to define the vision for future and possible development paths for future development. The client is KUUMA’s regional public utility.
