The Nordic Alliance for Communication & Management (NORA)

Leveraging communication as a strategic driver of sustainable organizational performance and success in a changing world.

The communication in, by, and about organizations is rapidly changing due to digitalization and globalization as well as increasing demands for sustainability. The Nordic Alliance for Communication & Management (NORA) is a cross-disciplinary and regional research group focusing on communication as a strategic driver of sustainable organizational performance and success in a changing world. To this aim, we:

  • engage (bringing together leading communication managers in the Nordic region with researchers from communication and management disciplines)
  • inquire (identifying emerging trends and topics),
  • develop (creating new research-based knowledge), and
  • disseminate (shaping the debate in the Nordic countries).

Follow NORA on FacebookTwitter and LinkedIn and join the conversation at Corporate Communication Nordic.
