Smart Kalasatama is an internationally award-winning innovation platform in the city of Helsinki, Finland, where various Smart City solutions are being tested and developed in an urban environment. Still under construction, its full vision is slated to be realized by 2035 with 25K residents and the creation of 8K new jobs.
Today, in collaboration with its 3,000 residents, city officials and stakeholders, Kalasatama is a real-life testbed for new e-services, smart city design, and is home to the new Health and Wellbeing Center where six different social and health sectors and a range of services are combined under one roof. As a city, Helsinki has made the strategic decision to become a culture of experimentation to accelerate urban innovation. The vision of Kalasatama is to become so resource-wise that residents will gain 1 hour of citizen`s time every day.
