Skilled workforce and internationality

North Savo needs skilled workforce to strengthen and maintain the economic development of the region. Reports have shown that the availability of talents has been recognised as one of the biggest challenges for the growth and existence of companies and organisations. 

The sources for economic development in North Savo are built on the identified joint development spearheads of the area. These include mechanical and energy technology, forest industry, food, wellbeing technology, tourism, smart water system, and biorefining. There is plenty of established research, education, and innovation activities within these seven focus areas, not to mention significant business activities. 

The development and support functions of the green transition are important for all sectors, such as in energy production and the development of sustainable tourism.
