The main policy objectives of the Thematic Group for Sustainable Cities and Urban Development:

  • to increase knowledge concerning the local urban qualities and socioeconomic conditions of small and medium sized Nordic and Arctic cities,
  • to help improve governance practices for sustainable development of small and medium sized Nordic and Arctic cities, based on their local urban qualities and socioeconomic conditions,
  • to deepen the understanding of linkages and external relations (regional, national, global) of small and medium sized Nordic and Arctic cities with particular focus on urban-rural relations.

Our main target groups are policy makers and civil servants in the Nordic Region working with urban planning and regional development in local, regional and national authorities.

Finally, challenged with requirements to develop “flexibility, adaptability, speed, or incentives for innovation that are critical for effectively carrying out” the new mission (Morris & Jones, 1999), traditional universities see “entrepreneurship” as “a negative term,” “all the more so after they have seen hard managerialism in action. They may go on thinking of entrepreneurship as raw individualistic striving that is socially divisive” (Clark, 1998, p. 148). https://statementwriter.com/
