Here is the knowledge you need!
The Öresund Region comprises Skåne, Sweden, Region Zealand and the Capital Region, Denmark. It is the largest and most densely populated metropolitan and labour market area in the Nordics. It is Scandinavia’s most extensive recruitment base for highly skilled labour and one of Northern Europe’s most knowledge-intensive regions.
The continent will be even closer when the highly anticipated Fehmarn Belt link between Denmark and Germany is completed in 2029. Travel time to major cities such as Hamburg, Germany, will be significantly reduced, bringing competencies closer together.
The Öresund Region is home to top-ranked universities with unique research. You will also find two world-class materials research facilities here – The European Spallation Source (ESS) and MAX IV.
