Nationalekonomi , Jönköping International Business School
Ekonomie Doktor

Charlotta Mellander är en av landets främsta experter på städer, kreativitet och regional utveckling. Hon har även varit tongivande i debatten om klyftan mellan stad och land. 

Tillsammans med professor Richard Florida har Charlotta Mellander varit med och utvecklat och publicerat teorier kring den kreativa klassen och städer där de vill bo. Teorierna berör såväl företag som regioner, som strävar efter att attrahera kreativa individer. Forskningen berör också kompetensförsörjning och flyttmönster mellan regioner. 

I sina föredrag tar hon ett bredare grepp på regional utveckling och kopplar samman ekonomi, entreprenörskap och innovationer med mjukare värden som öppenhet, tolerans och lycka.

Charlotta Mellander är en mycket efterfrågad talare både i Sverige och internationellt. Hon har bland annat föreläst internationellt för FN, EU-kommissionen och företag som IBM, men också nationellt för svenska företag och kommuner.
