Nordic Edge is the official Norwegian Innovation Cluster on Smarter Cities and Communities. Nordic Edge is a not-for-profit organisation that works as a catalyst bringing the different players in the field together to find answers to the current and future challenges of different-sized communities.
Nordic Edge is also the host of the largest Smart City conference and exhibition in the Nordics. The next Nordic Edge Expo takes place September 25th – 27th 2018 in Stavanger, Norway, and brings together a global audience of more than 4500 suppliers, buyers, decision-makers, and thought-provoking experts. The expo displays the very best of the Nordics take on forward-thinking, practical solutions, and innovative expertise in tackling Smart City challenges.
A Nordic Edge Expo in Beijing, China is being planned, with the ambition of establishing a Smart City gateway between the Nordic region and the Chinese capital region. Here we will connect Nordic and Chinese stakeholders to present and discuss innovative solutions for Smart & Sustainable Cities.
