The main objective of this project is to identify and analyse good practices that serve as examples for learning and finding tools, methods and approaches to improve service provision.
Implemented under the Nordic Thematic Group for Sustainable Rural Development, the initiative will focus on new and Innovative forms of service supply. Case study examples will shed a light on how different services are co-created through different types of inter-municipal and inter-regional collaborations, including the involvement of non-governmental organizations / non-profit organizations.
The geographical focus will be on small and remote rural areas in different parts of the Nordic Region. Selected case studies will be in the areas of healthcare, welfare / social sector and education, and cross-cutting issues will be digitalization and social innovation.
The project is currently under development and based on close cooperation between Nordregio and the members of the Nordic Thematic Group for Sustainable Rural Development. The results of the study are expected to be presented in September 2020 during a webinar.
