Working to create even better cities and communities to live and work in through innovative use of technology puts the Nordic Edge Smart City Innovation Cluster in a perfect position to stimulate cooperation between players from the public sector, the private sector and research institutions, says Director Stig Finnesand.

"We are working within a triangle of unforeseen potential", says Finnesand, who joined the Nordic Edge team in June 2018.
