The city of Espoo in Finland has been named the 2018 Intelligent Community of the Year by the Intelligent Community Forum (ICF) at its global summit in London. Espoo is the first Scandinavian city named as Intelligent Community of the Year since Stockholm in 2009, and the first European Intelligent Community of the Year since Eindhoven, Netherlands in 2011. Last year’s winner was Melbourne.

Espoo was selected as the 2018 Intelligent Community of the Year after a year-long evaluation that included a quantitative analysis of extensive data, site inspections by the ICF and votes from an international jury made up of experts from around the world.  Communities in the Awards program are evaluated based on six Intelligent Community Indicators - broadband, knowledge workforce, innovation, digital equality, sustainability and advocacy - and in the context of ICF’s annual theme, which this year is “humanising data”.
