OCT 29 – THE EU DAY LUND 2021

October 29 @ 08:00 - 17:00

Are you curious about how major societal trends like “Our Digital Future”, “Cyber Security” and “Climate Neutral and Smart Cities” will affect the future of Lund, Skåne and Europe?

Then make sure to register to THE EU DAY LUND 2021, October 29!


THE EU DAY LUND is a brand new conference gathering decision-makers and researchers from the public, private and research sectors to discuss how to deal with common future challenges and societal shifts, while making Swedish business and research competitive and attractive on a global level. October 29 will be the first edition of this venture which we intend to make an annual forum for strategic discussions.

The purpose of this day is also to raise awareness of how EU policy affects the everyday life of organizations and to promote knowledge exchange with players from all sectors and levels; i.e. business, research and the public sector, from a local to European level.
