Innovation Event in Tampere 28.-30.3.

Please read the diaries of both the Danish and the Finnish teams and watch this Vlog to get a taste of our inspiring three days at the Innovation Event in Tampere!

Please find an outline of our programme below:


We picked up our guests at the railway station at 18.56 and  walked to our school nearby, where we cooked something quick, easy and delicious using “pulled oats” –  a finnish innovation, that has been on everyones lips in Finland during the past year – albeit not concretely, because the production cannot keep up with the big demand. We watched the following video and had a short discussion.

For dessert we had traditional finnish blueberry pie – unforgettably in the light of smartphones, after the lights went out.
