An international Smart City knowledge exchange

Nordic Edge China will be an event for sharing Smart City ambitions and experiences from two distinct societies: the Nordics and China.

This event truly demonstrates Nordic cross-border willingness to cooperate with China to showcase and develop comprehensive smart city approaches in collaboration with decision makers and solution providers. Nordic delegates from Norway, Finland, Denmark and Sweden will travel to Beijing to receive first-hand insights to the opportunities and challenges that lie in ambitious Chinese Smart City projects in DaXing District in Beijing and XiongAn New Area. These large-scale urban development projects are aimed to become smart sustainable cities with a substantial population and large variations in geography and culture, coupled with widespread access to new technologies and governmental change programs.

For Chinese stakeholders the event will provide:

  • access to Nordic Smart City initiatives, past and present, without travelling to Scandinavia and facing possible language barriers
  • a platform for authorities and companies to present to a Nordic audience
  • networking with high level representatives from both the public and private sector

Visitors from Nordic municipalities and companies will have the opportunity to:

  • showcase Nordic Smart and Sustainable City initiatives
  • gain first-hand knowledge of innovative Smart City planning and solutions on a large scale through talks and site visits
  • initiate collaborations with Chinese counterparts, including participation in urban living labs
  • find partners in the Chinese market assisted by a joint event

What to expect:  

  • 200 Chinese participants
  • 10 Nordic cities showcasing their Smart & Sustainable City initiatives based on public-private partnerships
  • 10 Nordic speakers with expertise within a variety of Smart City areas
  • Chinese municipalities presenting their Smart & Sustainable City initiatives
  • Chinese speakers with expertise within a variety of Smart City themes
