Advancing a smarter and greener tomorrow


To be the epicenter of the Nordic Smart City Eco-system, creating new business opportunities and knowledge-based jobs

Core Philosophy

Smart with a heart

What we do

Built on the core philosophy “Smart with a Heart”, Nordic Edge strives to advance a smarter and greener tomorrow with a human-centric, inclusive, and collaborative approach.

By sharing and enhancing knowledge, being an arena for interaction, initiating cross-sector collaboration and innovation projects, and creating commercial opportunities, our aim is to strengthen innovation capacity on behalf of our cluster members. Thus, resulting in scalable solutions, new business opportunities and knowledge-based jobs that benefit both people and the planet.

We believe that a smart city puts the citizens first, using new technology, innovative methods, and co-creation to make the city a better place to live, reside and work.


We mainly work within the areas active citizenship and knowhow, mobility, urban energy and spaces and places. In addition to cluster projects, we enable change through Innoasis and the Expo. 

Through our toolbox and coworking space, Nordic Edge Innoasis, we facilitate for our members to connect, collaborate and evolve. At Innoasis, you are a part of an engaged community where you can find the right people to help you develop sound solutions, test your idea and make it market-ready, and gain access to a large investor network and comprehensive expertise. 

Every year, we host the Nordic Edge Expo & Conference, an arena where business, politics and academia come together to find and present scalable solutions for tomorrows challenges. The Expo is the leading Nordic event for future cities and communities, enabling action towards UN´s Sustainable development goals. 



Sustainability is at the core of everything we do. Rapid urbanisation increases the pressure on climate, infrastructure and services. Working in concert across sectors and borders to accelerate transformation, we are better equipped to meet the shared challenges of our citizens and cities.
