As a business economist, Dr. Luise Noring is apt for specialising in urban governance and finance, including economic assessments and socio-economic impacts of urban development, urban business models and finance mechanisms for implementation of both large-scale urban regeneration and smaller neighbourhood interventions. Noring has for several years focused on identifying and making available models for self-governing and self-financing cities, including institutional vehicle and finance mechanisms for urban regeneration, infrastructure investments and affordable and social housing.
Noring 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 global cities. While most of Noring’s work is EU-funded, her works 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 a 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 in Denmark. During 2014-15, Noring worked as an EU commissioned expert advising on policy making and research proposals for 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.
