Future Nordic mobility explored in Brussels with success

Mobility systems play an important part in ensuring that our urban areas will be liveable smart, and sustainable, and we need to start thinking about how to develop them sooner rather than later.

Nordic Innovation and Finnish service design company Hellon are developing the Nordic Urban Mobility 2050 Futures Game. Through discussions and choices, the players create future mobility scenarios through discussions about plausible mobility modalities, impacts, and desirability – everything with people in the centre.

The game will be used as a conversation starter for municipalities, companies and citizens to help plan and prepare for future of mobility, and to encourage participants to create new Nordic project proposals that can be funded by Nordic Innovation.

Nordic Innovation will be key partner in World Circular Economy Forum 2019

The World Circular Economy Forum 2019 will bring together around 2,000 key circular economy thinkers and doers from around the world. This year, the forum will have a strong emphasis on the next era of the circular economy and scaling up the transition.

"I am very happy to announce that Nordic Innovation will be a key partner in this year’s World Circular Economy Forum in Finland. I hope that WCEF2019 will bring the Nordics closer together in transitioning to a more sustainable and circular future", says Svein Berg, Managing Director of Nordic Innovation.

As a part of our Nordic Sustainable Business Transformation programme, Nordic Innovation work to speed up the transition to a circular economy. Together with Sitra and the other partners at the WCEF2019, we hope that this initiative will have a big impact in the Nordics and beyond.  

Nordic smart cities collaborate to attract global investments

Several Nordic cities construct and use urban living labs to become smarter, more sustainable and more liveable. With funding from Nordic Innovation, the 14 Nordic cities in the Nordic Smart City Network have created the Nordic Urban Living Labs project to develop ‘best practices’ for living labs and urban development, and strengthen collaboration between Nordic cities. By promoting Nordic urban development solutions, they hope to attract global investments.
