The Møre City as European Capital of Culture 2027

The project will form a knowledge base in the Møre City application process as the European Capital of Culture in 2027. The goal of becoming a European Capital of Culture is the main part of this project and strategy work will be instrumental in achieving this goal.

Through an analysis of requirements, preferably through documents, and some interviews, as well as what status is today when it comes to infrastructure and anchoring in local plans, researchers will identify strengths and weaknesses in relation to the requirements made for such an application and status as the capital of the capital.

In addition, the researchers will try to estimate cost and demand to more fully meet the requirements and possible strategies in this work. Planning, competence building, infrastructure measures, media profiling, etc. can be an important part of this strategy. This will be the main contribution in the knowledge status.
