Talent Coastline Kick Off

Finnish companies need skilled employees in general, but also employees with special skills not currently
available in Finland.

Talent Coastline is part of the national programme: Talent Boost – International talents boosting growth, a
joint cross-sectoral programme for the Government. In the kick off we discuss about the different ways to
attract international talent to our region and find opportunities for our international students and
immigrants to find employment and training possibilities in the local companies.

The kick off is organised by Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment (ELY) and VIEXPO.

We welcome all interested stakeholders to the event. Registrations at: Talent Coastline registration by 17.1.2019.
Event will be held in English, Finnish and Swedish.
