Two days prior Tysklind will be giving a public lecture entitled Samverkan – avgörande för utveckling av smart miljöteknik.

    Since cooperation across organisations and disciplinary borders is what Bio4Energy is about, and since Tysklind is part of its new research platform Bio4Energy System Analysis and Bioeconomy, which is task is precisely to provide a system's perspective on processes and products that are developed in the cluster, the award is felt to be timely.

    "During many years we have been making an effort to cooperate widely with different organisations in society. Now that one thinks about it they are incredibly many. Lately we are [reaching out specifically to] organisations that promote sustainable development and green technology and environmental technology. It has resulted in [the university's] investing in a new area of research on Green Technology and Environmental Economics", Tysklind said when asked why he thought he had received the prize.

    Europaforum 2017

    Plats: Skellefteå statshotell

    Tema:Regionen i EU- en union i förändring

    Program: http://www.europaforum.nu/media/62183/program-efns-skelleftea-22-23-februari-2017.pdf

    Frågan om EUs framtid är mer aktuellt än någonsin. Samtidigt som vi ser splittring mellan medlemsstater så efterfrågar regionerna mer utbyte och inflytande. Europaforum norra Sverige är de fyra nordligaste länens alldeles egna påverkansinstans, där politiska företrädare från lokal och regional nivå i de fyra nordligaste länen påverkar den politik som EFNS driver.

    Under dagarna i Skellefteå kommer vi att bland annat lansera och diskutera den aktuella OECD-rapporten för de glest befolkade områdena i norra Skandinavien, EUs framtida regionalpolitik, Brexit och vad en eventuell regionombildning skulle kunna betyda för EU-politiken. Vi kommer också anta politiska positioner för påverkan.

    Skriv in Europaforum Norra Sverige 2017 i din kalender. Forumet kommer att hållas på Skellefteå Stadshotell, så passa på att boka rum redan idag.
