Skåne European Office supports our region’s experts through policy monitoring and networking in Brussels. The large-scale infrastructure project across Fehmarn Belt between northern Germany and south Denmark is of great importance to Skåne and the rest of Scandinavia, and is promoted through collaboration with other members in the STRING network – Capital Region of Denmark, Zealand, and the Hanse EU Office which represents Hamburg and Schleswig-Holstein.
We alsp provide a contact point for European partners interested in collaborating on the topic of Smart Cities and Communities. We support the Region Skåne-led GREAT project, which is building charging stations for electric vehicles and bio-LNG driven freight vehicles to promote shifting to alternative fuels. Through our collaboration with our partners in the HyER network, we promote hydrogen as a fuel, and biogas is used regionally for a large portion of the public transport.
