From Estonia to Finland, new Smart City Centre boosts research
Estonia will become the home of a new multidisciplinary smart-city centre of excellence (CoE), which is part of a joint venture between the Estonian Tallinn University of Technology, and Finland’s Aalto University as well as Forum Virium Helsinki. The EU-funded FINEST TWINS project will help Estonia’s CoE form strategic partnerships between key stakeholders in both countries. The centre will pair with existing leading smart city centres around the world by focusing on research related to mobility, energy and the built environment combined with governance, urban analytics and data management. To translate research results into real-life innovations, the centre will develop user-driven smart city solutions via a cross-border platform for innovation collaborations with dozens of companies in both countries.
