Smart Specialization

In accordance with the European Commission’s Cohesion Policy, Urban ICT Arena have defined its role within smart specialization in the Stockholm Region – Sustainable and Connected City.

The Stockholm Region as a whole has not settled on any Smart Specializations yet. But our guess is that Life Science, Clean tech and Lean Production are in the top three.

Then we have chosen to focus on three areas within Sustainable and Connected City to help our partners to focus on pre-existing conditions and future possibilities.

  • Drones
  • Sensors
  • Cyber Security

If you take a look at our ongoing projects, you will realise that all the projects are connected to at least one of these specializations. All of these areas are related to the devlopment of smart and connected cities. They will also help us to focus on what kind of future projects and possibilities we are looking for. In the end, the aim is to strengthen the Stockholm Region competitiveness as a whole by pushing innovation to reach the Global Sustainability Goals.
