Noting that cities are playing the most important role in the development of the Baltic Sea Region development, the UBC Board together with the Baltic Development Forum, the City of Turku and Tartu Smart City Lab have embarked on a joint initiative to prepare for a “Baltic Sea Region Urban Forum for Smart Cities”, which will play an important future role for enabling urban areas in the Baltic Sea Region to move beyond “pockets of smartness” to becoming genuinely smart. The preparatory activities have received financing from the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region Seed Money facility.

We look forward to seeing you in Tartu!
