In October, the City of Tampere becomes a platform for the first ever, international Tampere Smart City Week. The ultimate goal for the week is to initiate cooperation between universities, businesses and citizens alike, and to enable the creation of new smart city solutions and business models that can be scaled to other cities in the world.
The programme running from 8th - 12th October consists of several independent, yet interlinked events. During the week you can hear examples of new smart technologies and smart developments, and if you’re lucky you might even catch a glimpse of a robot or two!
But what does it really mean to be living in a smart city? How can we improve our living environment, as well as business and investment opportunities? The key, in our opinion, is the "three C's": Collaboration, Cooperation & Co-Creation, and that is what Tampere Smart City Week is all about! During the week the “Smart City Cookbook” will be published (and promoted here in the Academy), this publication from the Smart Tampere program provides guidance for Smart City Program Managers and Developers for establishing an effective smart city program framework.
The City of Tampere and its Smart Tampere program are working in close cooperation with local universities, businesses and other organizations to bring you the most exciting, diverse and high-profile week one can only imagine!
See our Facebook page for further details on the program of events and we look forward to seeing you there!
