The aim of the ecosystem is to promote the vitality of the region by enabling an internationalising labour market and the growth of companies, and by strengthening regional and local attraction and retention power for international experts. 

We promote the visibility of Ostrobothnia and Central Ostrobothnia as an internationally attractive area for living, studying and working.  Our goal is to jointly promote services to promote the employment of immigrants and to support the international recruitment of employers. In addition, our goal is to prevent labour exploitation and promote ethical recruitment practices.
