Tallinn invites companies to test their sustainable innovation solutions in the capital city!
Mayor of Tallinn Mihhail Kõlvart launched the Test in Tallinn initiative to welcome companies around the world to test their smart solutions on the streets of Tallinn in three focus areas: mobility, energy efficiency and renewable energy.
Tallinn, as the capital of Estonia, has an 800-year history as a developing and modernizing city. For more than 20 years, Tallinn has been a leader in providing digital services globally and using them in everyday life. Its intelligent gov-tech solutions are widely recognized as a part of the e-Estonia concept. The vibrant tech-scene has experienced the birth of unicorns and continuous innovation. The City of Tallinn is a perfect testing ground for new innovative solutions: several intelligent city solutions have already gone live, self-driving buses and delivery robots are already on the streets, space-technologies are being used in a non-space environment. We support start-up ecosystems and work closely with universities, incubators, clusters etc.
Our approach – Think global, Test in Tallinn – is being used in the Tallinnovation concept to develop smart city solutions together with the city. This new and collaborative model will help to test and evaluate your ground-breaking innovative product`s usability and functionality, providing that way support for the entry into the global markets. As a city, we would like to facilitate this process, by finding the right people in the city organization for implementing pilots and assessing their usefulness as well as finding suitable locations for implementing pilots from the urban environment and streets.
Tallinn is the city where the future is now. We are very much looking forward for companies and talented people to innovate for the future and to scale-up your business in Tallinn! Share your ideas with us and let`s cooperate!
