The Nordic Alliance for Communication and Management (#NORA) aims to leverage communication as a strategic driver of organizational performance and success in a changing world. Members strive for leveraging communication excellence through a close exchange on best practices paired with high-level scientific reflection from latest research.

Leading communication executives from renowned companies meet regularly with communication and management researchers from Norway, Finland, Sweden, and Denmark. We strive to jointly identify emerging trends and topics, develop new research-based knowledge, and shape the debate in the Nordic countries. Our meetings provide an inspiring and personal atmosphere to exchange ideas between academia and management practice on an equal footing. Virtual workshops and information bulletins help to share insights and experience.

#NORA, as the key think tank in the Nordic region, collaborates with similar initiatives across Europe, and globally. This helps to bring our perspectives into the international discourse.

New corporate and academic members are suggested and voted in by existing members.
