Development work on the Research Facilitator operational model was carried out as a survey. The aim of the survey was to identify the existing resources, needs and implementation possibilities of the Kymenlaakso region’s research support services.
The survey was implemented as a purchased service, and drew participants from eight of the region’s RDI organisations. The implementation and results of the survey have been explained in a separate document and appended to the final report (Support services for project preparation in the Kymenlaakso region, Oxford Research Oy). The survey results were presented to the region’s actors in a seminar on 2 December 2014, which laid the groundwork for the organisation and resourcing of a common project preparation arrangement. The seminar was organised in collaboration with the KyGlo, Fifi and Bridge-Moct projects.
