Participants are also welcome to continue working on their ideas and solutions on the following day.

Best ideas and concepts are presented to wider audience of leading politicians and policy makers.

1) Empathy Map

Understanding the day to day challenges and needs of our user profiles; the professional family, the artist and the entrepreneur.


2) Ecosystem Map

Researching leading edge technologies, organisations, business models and thought leaders.

3) Ideation

Generate as many ideas as possible and select the best ones.

4) Prototyping

Form teams to prototype and present practical solutions.

5) Integration

We will then carefully consider how to integrate these solutions and prototypes into our development strategy and masterplan of NobelBerget.


Over the next 6-8 years we will be redeveloping the area of Nobelberget into a residential neighbourhood with over 500 apartments. We want to continue working with what Nobelberget stands for today; creativity and culture - and develop Nobelberget forward together into a place that celebrates sustainability, with a strong spirit of innovation, entrepreneurship and civic participation. 

We are following a three stage co-creation process.

The first step is to focus on hosting events, workshops and gatherings, through which we can catalyse deeper conversations, spark new ideas and strengthen local networks, continuously adding to our ever-evolving ecosystem map of people, projects and possibilities.

The second step is to build our network of city-makers who can work with us to co-create innovative services and community projects which we can integrate into our masterplan for NobelBerget.

The third step is to open an urban innovation incubator at our culture house in Fabriken and to launch a digital platform that will help us to weave together all of our ideas, projects and services.
