It is estimated that by 2050 up to 70% of the world’s population will be living in urban areas. New solutions are required for sustainable development of cities.
The aim of the innovation hub - Functional City for People - is to bring together regional, national and international stakeholders from the academia, industry, public sector and civil society to learn together and co-create innovations to make life better for us all. Together we can bring new solutions to the challenges of urbanisation as well as to grasp new arising opportunities.
Our RDI Activities Focus on Three Thematic Areas
At the core of our innovation activities are Helsinki XR Center and Turbiini Entrepreneurship Accelerator
RDI activities are based on Metropolia's Arabian creative industries, see the introductory video.
