Nordregio Director Kjell Nillson gives the opening keynote at the second day of the 10th Annual Forum of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region.
He touched on demographic and economic changes and challenges in the Baltic Region, where Nordregio is involved in a series of major initiatives like the ongoing work on maritime spatial planning in Pan Baltic Scope or previous activities such as the Baltic Urban Lab project on developing brownfields and the SEMPRE programme on social empowerment in rural regions.
Nordregio also has a leding role in MAMBA, an Interreg project on social service access in remote regions – also as communications lead – and has been a driving force in the BSR Stars project on bio-circular and digital innovation in the Baltic Region, with a summary policy brief coming out this week.
