Kjell Nilsson appointed Affiliated Professor

Nordregio’s Director Kjell Nilsson has been appointed Affiliated Professor in Planning and Management of the Urban Green Infrastructure at the Department of Geosciences and Natural Resource Management, Faculty of Science, University of Copenhagen.

Congratulations Kjell! What does this entail for you and Nordregio?

“- In my position as Director of Nordregio I think it is good to have a formal affiliation with an academic environment. Hopefully, it will result in a closer cooperation, for example joint PhD projects, common applications for EU projects and dissemination of research results, where University of Copenhagen has excellent channels for reaching Danish practitioners.
I in my turn will bring a Nordic perspective to the university, as well as the extensive knowledge on regional development that is Nordregio’s token.”
Kjell will hold an inaugural lecture on 20 October at 2 pm. Read more here (in Danish)
