One of the tasks of the Regional Council of South Ostrobothnia is to promote internationalisation.
The Council informs about the possibilities of international co-operation and funding programmes, advises applicants and is an active member in international networks. The Council acts, for example, as a partial investor or partner in many international projects.
Applying for international funding is more important than before, because fewer funds are distributed in the current programming period. Increasing international co-operation and project activities benefits the whole region.
