Welcome to BJØRK

At BJØRK, we put partnerships first. We believe in collaboration between people, organizations and sectors as the key to creating concrete and sustainable results.

We are innovation managers and our methodology for cross-sector collaboration provides a safe arena to tackle complex challenges in local communities.

We work with small and medium sized Nordic municipalities, publicly owned ports and energy companies along with their local ecosystems. No matter how far you have reached or how many solar panels you have installed, we are driven by making a difference together with you.

The programs are based on close collaboration between the municipality, academia, businesses and inhabitants – all the way from problem formulation and idea generation to project implementation and full scale realization.

Smart City Experts

With more than 10 years experience from the Smart City sector we know how to turn digital possibilities into value creation.

Operative approach

We’re not happy until we see ideas realized in local communities, creating real value for citizens.

Strategic innovation model

Only 13% of Swedish municipalities work widely with innovation. 16 % collaborate with others and just 7% works systematically with R&D. Our systematic innovation model will help better these figures.


We’re not just in it for the money. We want to contribute to smarter and more sustainable societies as a neutral partner.
