MDI helped the city of Kauhava to draft a new strategy. Previously Kauhava had identified the need to determine its main attractiveness factors. MDI executed profiles for the main groups who had moved in and also for those groups who had moved elsewhere. The main groups were analysed based on their age, occupation, education and income level. As a part of the project, MDI identified the various financial incentives available to Finnish cities in order to help them become more attractive and competitive. As an outcome of the project, MDI provided multiple solutions for the city of Kauhava enabling it to enhance its attractiveness. The project was finalised in September 2018.
