Bearing the similar mission and vision of creating smarter cities, Nordic Edge has been collaborating with Forum Virium for several years through different projects and events. In 2021, Forum Virium organized a workshop at Nordic Edge Expo where Tools for Urban Innovators tested in Helsinki’s urban labs have been launched. At the workshop, concrete cases have been presented from urban labs and been reflected on by participants. You can watch the Open Forum (valid until 31 Decemer 2021): here
