When Tartu officials were planning a visit their twin city Tampere in Finland to exchange knowledge on Smart Cities, we were also invited. Our CEO Ülo Säre gladly joined the delegation.
As these two are twin cities, we decided to introduce to Tampere the solutions that are already familiar to Tartu.
Street-U. Tourists deserve a warm welcome. Together with Smart City Lab and Jüri Mölder, the City Secretary of Tartu, we started a project to take into usage Guide-U. In addition we introduced to both cities our capabilities with Urban Planning Application. By the way – the Ministry of Transport in Chile used this solution and will share their experience at the main stage as a keynote at Smart City Expo World Congress.
Finland is known by their work in research and development (R&D) all over the world. Everybody knows the names Nokia and Angry Birds that origin from there. And Tampere is known for R&D in Finland. We were glad that we got fresh and good ideas from Tampere officials. Ülo also met with the representatives from Demola - a unique and clever R&D center in Tampere. We are sure that we will do something great with them in the near future.
The visit was organized by our hometown – Tartu. In addition to Reach-U the delegation included Tartu Smart City Lab, Tartu IT companies and was led by the Mayor of Tartu, Urmas Klaas.
During the visit the delegation had an opportunity to take part of the Tampere 236th anniversary celebrations.
