This is Nordic Edge

Nordic Edge ties people, companies and cities together. We accelerate development across sectors, borders and regions for a smarter, more sustainable future.

Founded in Stavanger, Norway in 2015, our non-profit organisation aims to build a Nordic ecosystem for smart, sustainable and liveable communities through:

First up is Nordic Edge USA in Austin, Texas, 11-17 March. Followed by Nordic Edge China in the cities of Beijing and Yantai between 20-24 April.
