The Finnish flagship joint AI event is brought to you by the City of Espoo, Business Finland, Finnish Center for Artificial Intelligence FCAI, Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment of Finland, together with AI savvy partners.
City of Espoo
Espoo is one of Europe's forerunners in innovation and sustainable development. Home to the leading innovation hub in the Nordic countries, world-class research institutes, SMEs and global company headquarters, Espoo is the hotspot of AI innovation in Finland.
Espoo is the second-largest city in Finland, with close to 300,000 inhabitants. However, as a city, Espoo is far from traditional. Characterised by the lack of a single centre, Espoo has a network city structure with five urban centres offering excellent access to services and nature.
And it's the people who make the city. A thriving culture of empowering citizens and encouraging innovation is the key ingredient driving Espoo towards a sustainable future.
Espoo is your reliable AI partner in space tech, quantum, health, gaming, 6G, and more.
