3 ways to participate in Forum Virium Helsinki

Join us in making Helsinki the most functional Smart City in the world! There are three ways to participate. Get familiar with our living labs, join our open calls or propose a new project. We offer you piloting, experiments and sometimes funding too!

1. Company, participate in open calls and pilot in Helsinki

As one method to co-create the future Helsinki, we use challenge-based open calls for proposals. In these competitive open calls we ask startups, SMEs, large companies and research entities propose innovative solutions that tackle the challenges we have defined. Anyone with a proper business ID can make a proposition.

Experimentations are smaller, typically in the size of 2.000 € to 15.000 €, and are executed in 1 to 3 months. With experimentations we expect to learn about future opportunities together. Pilots are larger demonstrations and proof-of-concepts of new innovations with serious hypotheses of real life applicability, and they vary from 60.000€ up to several million euros per winning company. You will find ongoing open calls in the list below.

UrbanSense 5G

Offer your AR/VR solution and pilot it in a 5G environment in Helsinki

Does your company have an AR/VR solution that would be suitable for urban use and could utilise the 5G network? We are looking to purchase pilots for as much as EUR 8,000. Submit your offer of an AR/VR solution by 19 April! OPEN CALL IS CLOSED, THERE WILL BE MORE SOON!
