Nordregio Forum 2018 will focus on rural and regional development. What makes certain regions more attractive than others? What makes young people want to stay or return to some regions while others are suffering from out-migration of especially young women? What makes a region attractive for companies to invest in? What are the potentials for tourism in Nordic regions?
Nordregio Forum 2018 will dive into these, and more, questions and issues related to rural areas in the Nordic countries. With key-note speakers, parallel sessions, study visits and more, we hope to once again create an interesting arena for policy makers, organisations and other working with these themes to meet, discuss and exchange knowledge and experiences.
The venue is Grand Hotel in Lund, Sweden. Just north of Malmö and only 45 minutes by train from Kastrup, Lund with its approximately 89 000 inhabitants is definitely a city, but with rural areas just around the corner.
Registration and a full programme will be published in August. Stay tuned!
