Background

Centria University of Applied Sciences produces excellent international talent whose potential is currently not utilized in the best way possible in the region. An international professional has extensive knowledge of another culture and this should be used as an enabler for growth, especially in export enterprises.

Export Expert project identifies labour needs related to the export and internationalisation of businesses and assists companies in recruiting international talent. The aim is to create a model for the employment of international experts in the regions of Central Ostrobothnia, Ostrobothnia and Northern Ostrobothnia, developing the employability of business and engineering students and coaching companies to utilize international talent. The project promotes the transition from education to employment by bringing together businesses and international students in the region.

Project goals
