As a business economist, Dr. Luise Noring is apt for specializing in urban governance and finance, including economic assessments and socioeconomic impacts of urban regeneration and development, business models and financial mechanisms for implementation of both large scale urban regeneration and smaller neighbourhood interventions. Noring’s has for several focused on identifying and making available models for self-governing and self-financing cities, including institutional vehicle and finance mechanisms for infrastructure and housing.
Noring’s has a background in supply chain management, including a Master in supply chain management and a Ph.D. in supply chain partnerships. For the past years, Noring’s focus has shifted to include research into the complexity of cities homing in on understanding how cities are governed and financed.
Noring’s research is applied and gathers experience and lessons across predominantly European cities. Focus is on distilling best practices and developing methods and tools that allow for those practices to be adapted and adopted across cities. While most of Noring’s work is EU-funded, she has also been commissioned by the Brookings Institution, Siemens Cities, LSE Cities, and La Fabrique de la Cité, the philanthropic branch of Da Vince Group, amongst others. With first-hand knowledge of field research into cities, urban challenges, and solutions, Noring has developed broad experience with global cities and city stakeholders.
Noring is an Assistant Professor and Research Director heading a team of researchers and project coordinators at Copenhagen Business School. She is an expert in sustainable urbanisation, renaturing cities, and nature-based solutions. Since 2016, Noring’s company, City Facilitators, has provided specialist advice and guidance on urban growth, business development and urban finance mechanisms.
