Third and final workshop in the development of a Nordic Smart City Vision

Together with Design and Architecture Norway (DOGA) and a number of Nordic Collaboration partners, The Nordic Smart City Network invites you to take part in the third, and final, digital workshop in the Nordic Smart City Vision initiative – open for everyone who wants to contribute to the development of a joint Nordic human-centred and collaborative smart city model.

The workshop will be held online on 3. March 2021 from 9.30-12.00 CET and is of course free of charge.

The previous two workshops have identified what to take with us in the smart and sustainable cities and communities of the future – and what to leave behind. They have defined seven core elements of a Nordic smart city vision and explored barriers for bringing these into life.

In this third and final workshops we are keen to share the initial results with engaged participants from the Nordic countries and beyond.

We will also invite you to a discussion around the second phase of the project, which is about branding and export of Nordic solutions illustrating the joint smart city vision. How do we scale up existing smart city solutions in the Nordic region and beyond?

To reflect on this matter, and set the table for a further discussion, inspiring speakers with an international view on scaling Nordic solutions have been invited:

  • Enlai Hooi, Head of Innovation, Schmidt Hammer Lassen
  • Morten Kabell, Head of Smart Mobility Denmark, Rambøll
  • Fredrik Gulowsen, CEO and Founder, Nyby


About Nordic Smart City Vision

Municipalities and organizations from all over the Nordic countries have joined forces to define a common smart city model based on Nordic values – building on the good work that has already been done in the Nordic countries. The aim is to bring inspiration to Nordic municipalities of all sizes working with smart city processes, as well as strengthen the Nordic region's position as a leading smart city region globally – offering an alternative smart city model that puts the citizens’ quality of life at the center.

Based on already existing smart city initiatives and strategies in the Nordic countries, we will develop a joint Nordic smart city vision, which can serve as a framework for smart city work in cities and municipalities both in the Nordics and internationally. The model will describe how Nordic cities and municipalities can act as drivers and facilitators for collaborative processes and use new technology while protecting and putting forward the interests of the inhabitants.
