Many Nordic municipalities and cities are looking for innovative solutions to their urban challenges.

– Nordic Innovation is thrilled by the large number of applications, and we look forward to next step of the competition, which is for the Nordic jury to point out which urban challenges they recommend for the next phase of the competition, says Kristina Mårtensson, senior adviser at Nordic Innovation and project manager for Nordic Built Cities.
The selected urban challenges will, in collaboration with Nordic Innovation, launch a competition in the end of September, where the Nordic building sector and related sectors will be invited to send in their innovative solutions.
The Nordic jury meeting is scheduled to 12 June, and the result will be published shortly after this.
