Oxford Research has been commissioned by the Swedish Growth Agency to perform a mapping of the kind of activities, services, presence and regulations that actors in different types of rural areas demand.

During the autumn of 2019, the Swedish Growth Agency (Tillväxtverket) will together with other national authorities develop a method for rural analyses. They will also conduct an in-depth dialogue on how national authorities can better contribute to rural development.

Oxford Research has been commissioned by Tillväxtverket to perform a mapping of the kind of activities, services, presence and regulations in the areas given in Bill 2017/18: 179.1 that actors in different types of rural areas demand.

The results will be presented in a report and at a national meeting with the concerned authorities regarding state authorities’ support to rural development.
