The new Kalasatama area of Helsinki is an experimental innovation platform to co-create smart urban infrastructure and services. This centrally located old harbour area is developed flexibly and through piloting, in close co-operation with residents, companies, city officials and other stakeholders. The vision of Smart Kalasatama is to become so resource-wise that residents will gain an extra hour of own time every day. The project is coordinated by Forum Virium Helsinki, and funded by the European Regional Development Fund, the City of Helsinki and the Ministry of Employment and the Economy.
