Region Östergötland

In English

Region Östergötland EU office is part of Region Östergötland, located in the Southeast of Sweden. 

Östergötland is located 150 km south of Stockholm, between the capital and the other big cities of Gothenburg and Malmö, and borders the Baltic Sea. Östergötland has a population of approximately 460 000 inhabitants and is home to two of Sweden's ten most populated cities: Linköping and Norrköping. These cities share one of Sweden’s largest and most innovative universities, LIU, which is renowned for innovative education, cross-border research and close collaboration with industry and society.

The EU office is part of the international unit at Region Östergötland which operates as a support function to other units within the organization as well as a bridge between regional actors in Östergötland and the EU. The international unit’s primary tasks are operational development within the organization, cooperation between local, regional, national and European actors, as well as lobbying efforts in areas that are particularly important to the Region.

The office has a primary focus on four broad areas of coverage:

  • Health and care
  • Culture and nature
  • Business and labour market
  • Spatial planning

Much of the lobbying efforts in these areas is undertaken through consultations from experts within our own organization, as well as through consorted efforts through our strategic alliances with other regions and international networks. Membership in international networks and collaborative organizations provides opportunities to operate and act on the basis of a larger political platform which makes our voice stronger within the EU. 

Please do not hesitate to get in touch with us with any inquiries.
