At its core, smart cities are about people and success of cities can be measured by how well they serve the needs of the people who live there. In his speech, Brynskov focuses on how to develop technologies and innovations that enable a smooth living without forgetting the person at its centre. Nordic countries provide a good base environment for that.

Dr Martin Brynskov is globally known for his practical approach to developing smart city solutions together with governments and private sector. Besides his role in the OASC, Dr Brynskov is also director of the Centre for Digital Transformation in Cities and Communities (DITCOM) at Aarhus University, Denmark.

The main themes of Smart City Mindtrek 2020 will cover sustainable future, carbon neutral building and energy transition.

“The event is meant to strengthen and support smart cities’ development and provide a platform for experts from various backgrounds and areas for networking and exchanging ideas,” describes Seppo Haataja, Director of Smart Tampere Ecosystem Program, Business Tampere.

The Smart City Mindtrek 2020 International Technology Conference and Business Expo in January 2020 is a joint project by Smart Tampere and the Finnish Centre for Open Systems and Solutions (COSS). The event is part of Tampere Smart City Week. The aim of the week is to introduce smart city solutions and to show how Tampere has implemented smart development.
