About Region Skåne

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”.

Creating a sustainable region

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.

Crossborder collaboration

Region Skåne also has wide-ranging involvements with other regions, both near and far. There are partnerships in various areas with places including Hamburg and Schleswig-Holstein in Germany, Western Pomerania in Poland and the Guangdong  region and the metropolis of Tianjin in China.
