Innovation Camp Aarhus 2018

Aim is to co-create solutions for implementing regional smart specialisation strategies

On 18th March 2018 Aalto University together with the City of Aarhus launched Aarhus Innovation Camp to co-create solutions for implementing regional smart specialisation strategies and supporting the economic transformation in Baltic Sea Region.

A first in the series, Aarhus Innovation Camp brings together 60 participants: regional actors, citizens, universities, politicians, businesses and other stakeholders to innovate around global and Baltic Sea region challenges selected for the Camp. Regions get inspiration and high level support through the official peer-to-peer reviews of their research innovation strategies organized by the EU Joint Research Center.

Aarhus Innovation Camp is launchpad to foster bottom-up regional innovation and facilitate trans-regional network building. Advised by experts in co-creation, smart cities and citizen-driven innovation the camp provides a democratic environment to build partnerships, experiment and set up engaging processes for generating solutions together.

Aarhus Innovation Camp is part of Smart-Up BSR project led by Aalto University, focusing on smart specialisation and developing regional competitive strengths, especially related to healthy ageing, smart cities, climate change and circular economy. BSR Smart-Up involves 13 partners and over 20 associate partners in the Baltic Sea Region, including academic, municipal and regional development organizations.
