The Øresund Experiment – new book on cross-border cooperation

Aug 25, 2021

Without the Øresund Bridge the idea of Medicon Valley would have been stillborn, and the bridge and the visions for political, cultural and economic cross-border cooperation associated with it is key for any ambitious Medicon Valley aspirations.

Consequently, we have co-sponsored and agreed to promote the new book, “The Øresund Experiment” which will hopefully help increase understanding of not only the history, but also the potential of our joint Danish-Swedish region.

“Anyone interested in transnational region-building and cross-border cooperation should read this book. It tells the intriguing story of a region that rose from nothing and was appointed role model for European transnational regions by EU”.

Jens Kramer Mikkelsen
Director of Urban Development, NREP
Former Lord Mayor of Copenhagen
