Nordic Smart City collaborations

Last year Nordic Innovation, which is part of the Nordic Council of Ministers, invited Copenhagen Solutions Lab and its Nordic partners to seek financial support to further develop the existing networking. This has now resulted in a funding contribution to the 14 Nordic cities of the smart city network of 4 million NOK from Nordic Innovation. The funding is recieved to create project collaborations across national borders. Part of the grant will be used to support several ongoing projects that have special potential and common interest, where the projects can be expanded with the extra Nordic funds.

Knowledge from our neighbours
Because the countries are so similar in relation to focus areas and approach, many of the solutions developed in one city will be relatively easy to use in the cities of other Nordic countries. Thus, there is good reason for the network to learn from each other, accelerate the building of expertise and help Nordic companies into the Nordic market - and in the longer term even further.
