Policy Document
RUFS 2050 - Program för ny regional utvecklingsplan för Stockholmsregionen
Organisation responsible

RUFS 2050 is a continuation of efforts to realise the vision of Stockholm as Europe's most attractive metropolitan region.The basis for regional development activities in Stockholm County is the Regional Development Plan for the County of Stockholm. The shared vision for the Stockholm region is to become one of “Europe’s most attractive metropolitan regions” and this is supported by four objectives:

  • an open and accessible region;
  • a leading growth region;
  • a region with a good living environment; and
  • a resource-efficient region.

The visions and objectives are also supported by six strategy areas, which serve as benchmarks for the regional development. One important strategy area is to develop ideas and capacity in order to stimulate renewal and innovation. The strategy area includes several activities to promote innovation. Examples of such activities are:

  • formulation of long-term business policy;
  • use public procurement to encourage innovation;
  • make entrepreneurship a basic skill in the education system; and
  • stimulate dense, knowledge-intensive environments.
