In partnership with
Tampere is one of Finland’s major urban, economic and cultural hubs, known for its courage in city development, its easy-going atmosphere and high quality of living. The City is functioning more and more as a platform for joint smart city development. It creates possibilities for companies, universities and research organisations to co-create new services and solutions together with the citizens in smart city ecosystems.
The Smart City Event by the City of Tampere has become a staple at the Mindtrek conference, and this year, it focuses on themes such as Smart Mobility, AI & Analytics, Blockchain, Smart Building, and Circular Economy. We also want to raise an important question: “How could we all join forces to improve our living environment and business opportunities?”
In 2018, Mindtrek is a part of Tampere Smart City Week organized on 8-12 October. The ultimate goal for the week is to enable cooperation between universities, businesses, NGOs and ordinary citizens, and to generate new smart city solutions and business models that are scalable to other cities.
The Smart City Cookbook is now launched at Smart City Week!
Based on knowledge and experiences gained through the first phase of the Smart Tampere program and benchmarking of other cities, It defines key smart city program elements, with guidance on their implementation, as well as example achievements from the Smart Tampere program.
This provides a great opportunity to promote Tampere as a Smart City, the program and project capabilities that have been developed, as well as marketing planned Smart City Learning services (being developed as part of the city’s education export initiative).
It’s been an exciting journey so far, and Nick Cotton, the planning officer of Internation Affairs is looking forward to continuing that with the now renewed Smart Tampere program and its projects.Link to the cookbook download
