Events and networking for the local international community

Connect with other international citizens and discover new opportunities at HIC events

HIC specialises in free high-quality, informative events for international residents living in the Greater Copenhagen Region. We are based in Helsingborg, which is where most of our events are held. We provide a range of social and professional networking sessions in English to help you integrate quickly and learn about your new surroundings. Inspiration evenings, business in Sweden seminars, social/professional media workshops, health and lifestyle talks, coffee mornings, guided tours…there’s something for everyone! Take a look at our Events page and Timeline to read more about HIC events.


When you’re new in town, a strong network is the key to successful integration. HIC supports the international community by providing a ready-made network, making the transition to living in Sweden so much easier. We have a wide range of excellent contacts who can help connect you and lead you towards volunteering, mentoring, studying and employment opportunities. HIC events are also the perfect place to make new friends and develop your social life. You’ll find our network invaluable as you take your next steps in your Swedish adventure!

We’ve helped people of 60 different nationalities

We’re proud to say that as of January 2019, over 60 different nationalities have attended HIC events or become HIC members. All are welcome!

HIC is an independent organisation supported by Helsingborgs Stad 

The HIC concept was created in 2013 by two friends with a desire to help other international people living in this region. We are in close contact with Helsingborgs Stad, Region Skåne, Lund International Citizen Hub and other local networks in order to find increased opportunities for the international community, and are helping shape future projects in the region. HIC’s role as a social entrepreneur was recognised by its acceptance to the Autumn 2017 batch of the SoPact Accelerator Program, set up to help organisations working with sustainable solutions to local issues.

HIC receives support from Helsingborgs Stad in the form of office space, office resources, catering and funding for events.
