Central Sweden is the bridge between the EU and the regions of Dalarna, Gävleborg and Örebro. Our goal is to contribute to achieving the members’ regional development strategies from an EU perspective. We are generalists who help the regions’ experts to consider EU perspectives in order to have an influence in the regions’ important issues and to use the potential of the EU’s sectoral programmes. Central Sweden works within two fields of activities: political lobbying and project support. Our tools to reach these objectives are EU analysis, supply of information, networking, education, setting up meetings and study visits.
