Nordic Edge is a non-profit corporation owned by private companies working in close cooperation with municipalities and city administrations to promote solutions for smarter cities and communities. Based in Western Norway, but with a Nordic focus, Nordic Edge aims to be one of Europe´s most important arenas for knowledge exchange and inspiration to creators of smarter businesses, cities and societies. Established in 2015, Nordic Edge is by far the largest Smart City event in Norther Europe.
The quest for a Smarter City is all about making better communities to live in – more liveable urban spaces where citizen interests and well-being come first.
This is rooted in the landmark survey ‘The World Happiness Report 2017’ published by the United Nations. All the Nordic countries are among the top 10 countries, with Norway ranking 1st, Denmark 2nd and Iceland 3rd.
The Nordic countries, individually and collectively, are at the cutting edge of technological and social innovation. This is why we believe that The Nordic countries can serve as a laboratory for smarter and more sustainable societies. As a result, the ambition of Nordic Edge is to be the Smart City accelerator that puts the Nordic region on the global map as a vibrant & vital region where innovative solutions for a smarter, safer, greener and better world are fostered.
By bringing together the best thinkers and the best doers, Nordic Edge Expo will be a not-to-be missed arena for inspiration, insights, idea exchange and action.
We are very interested in teaming up with more Smart City players from the Nordics and beyond, to help us accelerate the business effects in this sector, by initiating project collaboration and by establishing arenas where the public and private sector can come together to discuss new, innovative solutions to the urban challenges that all cities and communities will face in the coming years.
Please do not hesitate to contact us with your viewpoints, project ideas, sponsorship requests or questions on how to become an exhibitor.
