Located just North of the Arctic circle, Bodø is the largest urban area of Nordland county in Northern Norway. The city's substantial Smart City initiatives have in recent years gained national and international attention - Bodø is in a unique position to build brand new infrastructure for a large portion of its city as a consequence of the airfield being relocated.
"We have admired the region's Smart City initiatives and projects for quite some time", Finnesand says. "It will be a delight to get to know the project more in-depth, while also being able to share other cluster members' knowledge and expertise on Smart City initiatives and challenges.
Smart Bodø is a large scale urban development project. Zero emissions, green and sustainable solutions for mobility, infrastructure, waste and renovation is the ultimate aim of the new district.
