The possibilities of new work in rural areas from the perspective of women (UUTTU) project examines those factors which promote or hinder opportunities for new work in rural areas from the perspective of women.
The project provides an overview of the current state of knowledge-intensive service activities in rural areas from the perspective of women and identifies and considers new ways to promote job opportunities in rural areas from the perspective of women. The study directly produces proposals that feed into the information base and operating models that serve the Rural Policy Council, e.g. taking the women’s perspective into account in regional and local development.
The data collection methods of the study include the analysis of existing data (qualitative data as well as quantitative statistical data), thematic interviews, electronic survey workshops and a case study. The project will be implemented between May 2021 and June 2022. MDI will implement the research project in collaboration with expert Emilia Kangas, D.Sc.
The project is funded by the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry on the proposal of a project group set up by the Rural Policy Council, with funds from Makera’s national rural research and development projects.
