Baltic Sea Region Smart-Up Innovation Camp Tallinn 2018

Solving Grand Societal Challenges for Sustainable Future in BSR

come get inspired | come learn | come get smarter


17-19 September, 2018, Tallinn, Estonia

How a city can become smarter? What makes places attractive to global talent? How to improve public space and reduce segregation?

The world is experiencing growing urbanization. Although most of the growth comes from Asia and Africa, we can still see this process going on in already urbanized Europe. The growing population in the cities affects the access to public services, puts heavy pressure on public infrastructure and affects the overall living environment. At the same time the population in Europe is ageing which means that countries, regions and cities in Europe must compete for global talent if they want to remain competitive on the global scale. Cities in Europe are also seeing moral and physical decay of city districts built after WWII, the most likely destinations for minority groups and people with lower socioeconomic background. Because of this trend, cities in Europe are also seeing growing segregation and are in front of the question how to address the dwellers that live in these districts. These are the topics that Tallinn Innovation Camp wants to address because Tallinn is not an exception here.

Challenges of the camp:

1) Improving the quality of public spaces in post-WWII built city districts;

2) How to become a ‘smart’ city?
