Luise Noring is a program director and assistant professor at Copenhagen Business School. She is also a Nonresident Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution and an expert in sustainable urbanization at the European Commission. In addition, she runs her own enterprise as an independent researcher.

Noring has extensive experience in implementing large-scale international initiatives related to sustainable urbanization, urban infrastructure and governance, and other urban challenges. She helps lead the Urban Challenge Programme, an EU-funded initiative engaging six cities across Europe: Copenhagen, Denmark; Hamburg, Germany; Helsinki; Riga, Latvia; Rome; and Edinburgh, Scotland.

She currently works with approximately 30 partners across the world on projects centered on cities, with focuses including local municipalities, market leaders within urban sustainability, innovative start-ups, civic organizations, and research organizations.

In 2015, Luise began working with the Brookings Project on 21st Century City Governance, a collaboration of the Brookings Centennial Scholar Initiative and the Global Economy and Development program, which aims to deepen our understanding of the norms, institutions, and networks essential to successful city governance. Within the project, Noring’s work focuses on capturing and scaling best practices in U.S. and European cities in urban governance and finance innovations.

Since 2014, Noring has served as an expert in sustainable urbanization for the European Commission. In 2015, she was one of 12 experts who drafted policy recommendations for the European Parliament on ‘Nature-based Solutions and Re-Naturing Cities’.

Previously, Noring ran the European Union-funded project, ‘Green Innovation in Cities’, in which she collaborated with scholars at Copenhagen Business School, the University of Copenhagen, and the Technical University of Denmark. In 2015, this program was recognized as one of the most innovative higher education programs by the Danish Ministry of Education.

Noring has a Master in Supply Chain Management and a Ph.D. in Supply Chain Partnerships, from Copenhagen Business School. Since her early career and studies, she has focused on partnerships, including public-private partnerships, business-to-business partnerships, and innovative partnerships. Her experience includes a three-year research initiative into transactional costs in business-to-business partnerships, including those between IBM, Procter & Gamble, and Unilever.

Noring has extensive experience with living and working internationally, including time spent in Argentina (four years), France (four years), UK (three years), Switzerland (two years) and Germany (two years). In addition, she spent two long stays in United States (nine months) and Spain (four months). She speaks several languages, including English, ‘Scandinavian’, French, German, and Spanish.
