There is a great need to rethink the cornerstones our welfare society is based on.

We now introduce the Nordic training workshop Welfare Innovation that provides you with strategies and tools to successfully create and manage change to make welfare available and sustainable.

The workshop is lead by Nikolaj Lubanski and gives a kick-start to your work on welfare innovation.

Access to talent is increasingly becoming a critical factor and bottleneck to growth for many companies. Innovation ecosystems – cluster organisations, science parks and incubators – can play a key role in ensuring attraction, retention and development of talent.

But what are the concrete strategies and tools innovation ecosystems can use to secure access to talent?

Join our upcoming project to find out.

What can cities and regions do to enhance their attractiveness to business investment? How can we integrate business attraction with our general innovation and growth agenda?

This training module will provide you with the necessary tools and strategies, collected from real life best practice cases to inspire you, your team and other stakeholders in your location.

The module is based on the unique handbook “Business Attraction Management for Cities and Regions”.


The aim of Nordic Place Academy is to help make places – cities, region and countries – become more attractive. We do this through a comprehensive offer of training, conferences, study visits and development projects.

Ultimately, our goal is help create more creative interfaces and learning encounters between place actors in different countries – to develop better places.


We organise seminars, workshops and training to spread new inspiration and knowledge and build the capacity of those working to make places more attractive.
