Mission group 1 – Leadership development program

The aim for mission group 1 is to design and develop a common Nordic leadership development program that spans all sectors and Nordic countries.

Until today, top-level leaders in the research-, education- and innovation-system are typically trained to lead their own organization and inside their own sector.

The leadership development program should be a tool to break downs these barriers and silos. Instead, the leaders should work with and be trained in: how to lead with from a system or ecosystem perspective?

The leadership development program should also build and provide a network so the leaders will gain a Nordic and cross-national understanding.
