How can cities and regions co-operate on attracting and retaining talent instead of competing with each other? It is on everybody’s mind as the next frontier in talent attraction. Can we co-create solutions this spring in Lund?
More and more European locations are now taking active steps to enhance their attractiveness to skilled workforce, creative talent and entrepreneurs – but what are the best strategies and tools for attracting talent, now and in the future?
What if the next major innovation in talent attraction is not zero-sum competition, but sharing talents? There are different cities with different value offers for different target groups. Some cities attract talent in a certain age or sector, while others can cater better to an age profile that would appreciate a smaller, calmer and family friendly environment.
GUEST SPEAKER: Kajal Sanghrajka, Churchill Fellow Researcher and entrepreneur. Kajal does research and writes regularly at The Transatlantic Post on all things talent (see her last post on Finland). About Kajal.

Participants will benefit from open and frank facilitated group discussions, where we will share experiences and workshop on sharing of best TAM practises between participants. We will discus potential co-operation projects.
Nordic and European cities are different enough to learn from each other, but similar enough to co-operate on talent attraction. We believe this is true especially in the case of non- European talent, who may well regard the region as a whole.
After the morning workshop and lunch, we will go see how talents work in action. Courtesy of International Citizen Hub Lund, we will get to see how a prime talent attraction management region works with international talents. We will visit
