What has been achieved so far?

Here you can find further results of DART. Read more about ideas exchanged at conferences, find best practice examples from study visits, or skim through an indicator study or political recommendations.

All DART regions have experience in strengthening their economy, health care and education systems. Some participated in former INTERREG projects such as E-Health, Older People for Older People, Prometheus, Telemedicine and E-Health, MLAB Employment for young people, FORIET, DISTRICT, Eurbest or DESERVE.

Some regions are involved in demographic change orientated networks such as "Demographic Change Regions Network", "Seni@r" etc.

In Finland the declining and ageing society is usually seen as a serious problem with negative consequences. Therefore a strong change in attitudes is needed. When facing challenges, the North Karelia has already several times assumed the role of forerunner. Once again we need to review new structures, models and tools, as well as find innovative solutions aiming to improve tomorrow's prerequisite for living and working in our region. The main concern of the DART project is highly topical and any outcomes of fruitful European collaboration are warmly welcomed.
