Smart City solution

The Nordic Smart City Network is a Nordic collaboration initiative with five countries and a network with already 20 cities including the Nordic capitals. The cities share a common goal: to explore the Nordic way to create livable and sustainable cities.

The Nordic cities represent a market with approximately 5.300.000 million citizens and can affect their everyday life. The Nordic Smart City Network contributes to the advancement of Nordic-wide innovation and smart city solutions by aligning common activities, new technology, data and co-creation. The network activities include active collaboration with startups, companies and clusters.
