Stockholm Region EU Office contributes to the development and formation of EU policy for smart sustainable growth by providing examples, facts and ideas from Europe’s most innovative metropolitan region. Our priorities and areas of activity:
Stockholm Region is widely recognized as one of the most innovative regions in the world and was in 2017 designated the most innovative region in the EU.
The region manages to grow its GDP and at the same time decrease emissions. In addition, Stockholm ranks at the top of European regions in terms of sustainable development.
Stockholm has become a global tech and startup hub and is home to one of Europe’s most important tech communities.
Stockholm Region EU Office serves as a representation office for the Stockholm Region in Brussels. The office is run by the Stockholm Region Association for European Affairs, a non-profit organisation representing eight local and regional governments. Together, we represent one of the most competitive and fastest growing metropolitan regions in Europe.
With a population of over 3.6 million people, we represent approximately 36 percent of the entire population in Sweden and 32 percent of GNP. Stockholm Region EU Office has five full-time employees who support local and regional governments in the region by providing information, recommendations and communicating with the EU institutions.
