Region Skåne is responsible for healthcare and public transport, business development, culture, infrastructure, social planning and environmental and climate-related issues in Skåne. With 34,000 employees, Region Skåne is one of Sweden’s biggest employers. The overarching vision for Region Skåne is “World Class Quality of Life”.
Region Skåne’s task is to promote health, sustainability and growth in Skåne. Our role in terms of regional development is to create the ideal conditions for solving society’s challenges around employment, the environment and people’s health. By focusing on the social and physical factors that affect growth, the climate and the health of the people of Skåne, we are creating an attractive and innovative region. In so doing, we are making a difference to Skåne and the future of its residents every single day.
Together with the municipalities in Skåne, institutes of higher education, organisations and trade and industry, Region Skåne operates on a broad front to create health, development and sustainable growth in Skåne. Collaboration and sharing across boundaries are a prerequisite for the creation of a successful, sustainable region.
Skåne’s geographical location and proximity to Copenhagen has naturally led to intensive collaboration across the Öresund, and the labour markets in Skåne and on Zealand are becoming increasingly integrated.
