This is where innovative companies, academia and the public sector meet to create the sustainable cities of tomorrow.
Welcome to tomorrow.
Located in Kista Science City, one of the world’s leading ICT-clusters, we are an arena for creating, testing and showing the solutions for tomorrow’s sustainable cities.
We facilitate tests and projects in an actual urban environment. With the help our partners we provide testbeds with a wide array of digital infrastructure available for your applications and devices.
We like to spread the word about the innovative companies we are working with. Kista Science City is a showroom for smart city solutions. Each year, hundreds of delegates come here from all over the world to experience it first-hand.
Collaboration is how we make it happen. We bring together academia, public sector and business to create smart solutions for tomorrow’s cities. Today.
How people move in the city is changing through technology, connectivity and AI. We are working strategically with different partners in urban mobility projects.
Our cities are becoming connected. We can help you test smart city applications in a real urban environment.
Next stop, Royal Djurgården. The future of public transport has arrived at Stockholm’s green oasis. Today, a new bus route has been inaugurated where a self-driving, electric minibus connected to 5G will traffic visitors during September. HRH Prince Daniel was among the dignitaries to attend the official inauguration ceremony outside Tekniska museet.
Drones could be used for everything from delivering goods to inspecting bridges or mapping traffic patterns. However, drones could be a potential safety risk – what happens if they stop function while airborne? Urban ICT Arena is one of the participating partners in an EU study on how to address security-related threats that comes with drones in an urban setting.
One of the biggest concerns during the current pandemic has been overcrowding – in public transport, in malls or at the beach. Bumbee Labs, one of Urban ICT Arena’s partners, provides analytics and predictions on crowd data by capturing anonymous Wi-Fi signals in smart mobile phones.
Together with other innovation clusters in the Nordics, Urban ICT Arena is founding the Nordic Drone Initiative. This project will strengthen the ties between the different clusters and help companies working with drones to learn from neighbors and form new alliances.
Join our community.
We like innovative ideas. Our testbed is ideal for testing smart city applications. We can also assist in making the right connections, facilitate and opening doors.
