Small groups have been put together regarding e.g. cow fertility, rural entrepreneur well-being, crop production and investment management. However, all sectors, themes and fields of operation are suitable for collaborative learning.
In Finland, where distances are often long, small group activities offer the possibility to network and work together. Through networking with colleagues, new ideas in operational practices or overall business development needs can evolve.
