On 25-27 September the ICN Secretariat participated in the large “Smart with Heart” conference and expo in Stavanger, Norway, organized by ICN member Nordic Edge. The Nordic Edge Expo is by far the biggest Smart City event in the Nordic countries and was visited by more than 4500 unique visitors from more than 45 countries coming to see the newest developments within the Smart City sector. There were many highlights during the expo, the start-up village program and a large Chinese delegation to the event were some of the main interesting features of the event. The first day of the expo focused on societal challenges, the second day was more focused on the technology perspectives, whereas the third day dived deeper into specific topics such as the Nordic China conference, a know-how Edtech conference and a Lighthouse Cities program. Furthermore, Nordic Edge and ICN co-sponsored a ‘cocktails & conversations’ event on the Wednesday to celebrate Nordic Edge’s entry into ICN as the network’s Norwegian member. Nordic Edge has been a member of ICN since 1 January 2018.
