REMM – Summary in English
The Swedish transport administration (Trafikverket) has been commissioned by the Government to lead and coordinate the project REMM (Virtual Meetings in Public Agencies) since 2011. REMM organizes the work of a number of designated public agencies, in their efforts to increase the share of virtual meetings in their business communication, within the agency as well as with other public agencies.
The first 20 public agencies involved in Sweden were Arbetsförmedlingen, Bolagsverket, CSN, Energimyndigheten, Försäkringskassan, Jordbruksverket, Kammarkollegiet, Lantmäteriet, MSB, Naturvårdsverket, Pensionsmyndigheten, Post- och telestyrelsen, Regeringskansliet, Riksarkivet, Rikspolisstyrelsen, Skatteverket, Tillväxtverket, Trafikverket, Transportstyrelsen, Tullverket. From 2016, 67 additional agencies are requested by the Swedish government to increase their share of virtual meetings by applying the REMM-method.
One important tool for REMM is a Guide to Virtual Meetings – A ten steps tutorial to making virtual meetings an integrated part of your organization’s meeting culture.
