Sharing knowledge and ideas across the Nordic countries
IAKS Nordic to expand in 2023
The network was started on behalf of a existing network between sports facility organizations in the Nordic countries, which have existed for more than 50 years. Now we have to go further and expand to new members outside the historic established connections.
The network consists of approximately 43 members, where the majority comes from Sweden, Denmark and Norway in that order. In 2023 IAKS Nordic has the ambition to expand the number of members and to invite more members from the remaining Nordic countries.
Focus in 2023
In 2023 IAKS Nordic will have a special focus on the following themes, based on adopted strategy document 2023-2027:
Sport facilities that attracts nonexperienced participants
Facilities for outdoor sports
Solutions that combine sport and health
Integration of sports facilities in city planning
