Arctic Smart Rural Community, ProAgria Lapland
Arktinen älykäs maaseutuverkosto, ProAgria Lappi
The objective of the Arctic Smart Rural Community Cluster is to cut off the outflow of capital from rural Lapland and demonstrate the business potential of rural areas. This is achieved by creating new business operations in food products and processing as well as decentralised energy production.
Rural Lapland has enormous natural resources, but we are not utilising them efficiently and sustainably enough. Rural Lapland is by no means a remote corner of the world but is situated amidst incredible sources of raw material with almost infinite uses by utilising the principles of the circular economy.
The cluster consists of mutually supportive actors working towards the same goals: entrepreneurs, developers, municipalities, funders, politicians, projects, research and educational institutes, and business advisors. The cluster also coordinates development and project activities together with regional, national and international partners for the benefit of rural areas and businesses.
