Innovation Camp Aarhus 2018

March 18-21, 2018, Aarhus, Denmark

City delegation from Tallinn is joining Aarhus Innovation Camp to co-create solutions for implementing regional smart specialisation strategies and support the economic transformation in Baltic Sea Region.

A first in the series, Aarhus Innovation Camp brings together close to 70 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.

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

As a European Capital of Culture 2017 and amongst the finalists of iCapital Award – Aarhus is an inspiring and vibrant environment for co-creation, innovation and ecosystem development.

Aarhus Innovation Camp is part of BSR Smart-Up project focusing on smart specialization 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.
