The aim of the Production 2027 project is to develop and expand the manufacturing industry in Northern Finland and the activities of the RDI actors that support it by intensifying their partnerships and connections with national and especially European initiatives, programs and RDI networks. The aim is to promote the use of the forthcoming Horizon Europe 2021-2017 program and other international financial instruments.
The project works together with the Council of Oulu Regions “International and Networked Northern Ostrobothnia” project. Within the framework of it, e.g. joint theme days and webinars to inform and organize workshops on suitable funding applications. A joint group of regular actors from the province's international project activities will be assembled.
The project will be implemented as a joint project between the University of Oulu and the Oulu University of Applied Sciences, thus ensuring the best possible regional impact both for the companies in the region and for the RDI community serving them by utilizing the existing business network of both partners and the existing international networks. In addition to the Council of Oulu Region (EU ERDF funding), the project is being funded by the City of Nivala, Nivala-Haapajärvi Sub-region Association Nihak and Nivala Industrial Park Ltd.
