Nordic Edge Expo 2018 is a three-day conference and expo, running from 25th - 27th September, with opening keynote speakers such as Robert Strand (US), Lene Rachel Andersen (DK) and Kimmo Heinonen (Finland) on Tuesday 25th September.
Among the topics on the main stage during the first day, we will hear more about the following topics:
- Sustainable Vikings

- How to use innovative public procurement to achieve your Smart City goals
- Young ideas make warmer cities - why it's smart to co-create with kids
- Smart with a heart - how to cope with our major societal challenges
As last year, delegates get to choose from a number of parallel sessions and workshops with different smart city topics such as security, smart buildings, health, mobility, democracy, artificial intelligence, art, resilient regions, circular economy and procurement as a strategic tool to achieve your smart city strategies.
Nordic Edge Expo also offers a full day EdTech conference on 27th September targeting educators, business developers, politicians, and managers.
The Nordic Council of Ministers will host a Nordic-China conference on 27th September, while the Triangulum and Horizon2020 Lighthouse City program will host seminars and workshops for knowledge sharing and collaborating.
