Mission, Values and Objectives
SERN has adopted a new strategic plan in 2013 outlining its values and objectives. Learn more about it here.
SERN is the main transnational network in Europe fostering relations in a multilvel perspective between Northern and Southern Europe and in particular between Sweden and Italy.
SERN is the result of a long-term process of cooperation and exchange between Italian and Swedish actors. The idea of strengthening the relations between the two areas was launched by AICCRE Emilia-Romagna and pool of Italian municipalities in the summer of 2002 and took shape in the following spring with the organization of the conference Town Twinning Sweden Emilia-Romagna, supported by the European Commission in the framework of the Town Twinning programme.
