Region Skåne Brussels office

Region Skåne is represented by a small team with a permanent office in Brussels. The office is a part of the department for Regional Development, unit for External relations of Region Skåne.

Our priorities and activities in Brussels are decided by the directly elected politicians of Region Skåne, but also depend on the EU policy agenda.

The main functions of the office are to increase the visibility of Skåne at the European level and to strengthen knowledge and awareness of the European political process in Skåne. The office also assists regional politicians, civil servants, and different actors for development from Skåne with advice on EU policy and provides information and guidance on possibilities for project financing using EU funds and programmes.

Close co-operation and a broad network

The Brussels office also has an important strategic role in monitoring the EU policy agenda with regard to the region’s political priorities and main areas of interest: health care, research and innovation, industry, digitalisation and environmental issues.

The team in Brussels has a broad network of contacts in Brussels and Skåne. In addition to close co-operation with other Swedish regional EU offices, the team works closely with Universities in South Sweden, based in the same office space, and the Brussels representations of neighbouring regions, notably Greater Copenhagen EU Office.
