H22 is a major initiative by Helsingborg to develop future welfare solutions aimed at improving quality of life in a smarter, more sustainable city.
Many people think of technology and digitalisation when they hear the word innovation, but it is so much more than that. At the heart of it, it is about challenging our current ways of working. It is about finding new and better ways to meet needs. It is about daring to try things we have never tried before – even though we might fail before we hit it right.
THE CITY’S WORK WITH H22 CONSISTS OF TWO PARTS:
A city-wide innovation initiative. It’s about the journey towards becoming a smarter and more sustainable city. We have chosen to invest in innovation to tackle the challenges of both the present and the future. With new solutions, unique collaborations and effective work, we can do more for less. Here you can read all about how we work with innovation and how it permeates our entire organization. Read more here: Innovation in Helsingborg – for a smarter and more sustainable city
A City Expo – A stop along the way where we shine a light on all that’s been achieved between now and the summer of 2022. Together with over 70 partner companies and organisations, we have spent the last few years transforming the entire city’s DNA to become an innovation-driven enabler instead of just a service provider. We have both succeeded and failed. We have shared and learned from others, and this is naturally something we want to continue doing throughout H22 City Expo and beyond.

Helsingborg provides the whole city as a test-bed and is open to try out new partnerships with business, academia, civil society and other cities.
