For the first time in history the majority of people live in cities, and the urban population continues to grow. This has created a great need for more efficient, sustainable, and smart city solutions.

The Central Baltic region is at the forefront of the development of smart cities. In many cases the cutting-edge solutions are developed within a small or medium-sized enterprise. Unfortunately, these companies often lack knowledge and experience in doing business with new markets. This prevents them from offering their solutions to megacities in Asia, Africa and South America, or elsewhere.

The Central Baltic region has come far in the development of such solutions. In many cases the cutting-edge solutions are developed within a small or medium-sized enterprise , where the knowledge and experience in doing business with new markets is lacking . By increasing the cooperation among companies offering smart city solutions, the Central Baltic region can create a competitive edge and offer superior system solutions meeting the needs of the megacities.

Together we can become stronger, achieve synergies, and open the door for exports to new markets. The Central Baltic area has a unique opportunity to take a leading role in a market with tremendous growth potential over the coming years.

With that being said...
