Nordic Urban Strengths and Challenges: How do we perceive ourselves when it comes to developing sustainable, smart and liveable cities?
Responsible organisation
2015 (English)Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
Abstract [en]

An increasing population and historically unprecedented urbanisation characterise the 21st century. When resource-scarcity, climate change and growing demands for liveability are added into this mix, thinking of innovation and sustainability in the built environment becomes critical. The Nordic countries are in a strong position to address many of these challenges.

This qualitative study aims to serve as a starting point for the dialogue. It was commissioned by Nordic Innovation in 2014 in order to obtain an overview of how we in the Nordic region perceive ourselves – our challenges and strengths when it comes to sustainable, smart and liveable urban solutions. The study consisted of interviews with stakeholders from all around the Nordic region. The questions asked were: • What are perceived to be the main urban challenges in the Nordics? • What are perceived to be the key Nordic strengths when it comes to developing and offering innovative solutions for export? This report is based on the findings from interviews and a desktop study that were carried out by Rambøll Management Consulting during the autumn of 2014.

The publication was made as part of the Nordic Built Cities program run by Nordic Innovation from 2014-2017 to help develop, visualise and export Nordic innovative solutions for liveable, smart and sustainable cities.
