"Grow Smarter in a Week!"

In October, Tampere becomes a platform for the first ever, international Tampere Smart City Week. The ultimate goal for the week is to spark up cooperation between universities, businesses and citizens alike, and to enable the creation of new smart city solutions and business models that can be scaled to other cities in the world.

The week’s programme consists of several independent - yet, interlinked - events. During the week you will hear examples of new smart technologies and smart developments - if you’re lucky you might even catch a glimpse of a robot or two!

How can we all join forces to improve our living environment, as well as business and investment opportunities? Join us to hear more!

The City of Tampere is working in close cooperation with local universities, businesses and non-profit organisations to bring you the most exciting, diverse and high-profile week one can only imagine!

Smart Kids - kysymysten mestarit
Tues 9 Oct, 9 am - 12 noon & 4 pm - 7.30 pm

Miten, milloin, missä ja miksi? Tuttu ympäristö on täynnä jännittäviä yksityiskohtia, jotka herättävät fiksuissa tenavissamme tulvan kysymyksiä. Vastaukseksi ei riitä itsestäänselvyys. Mikä sitten riittää?

Smart Kids -tapahtumassa havainnoimme tieteen voimin ympäröivää maailmaamme, yhdessä. Havaintoa seuraa kysymys, kysymystä vastaus, vastausta ymmärrys. Kokeilemme fysiikan ilmiöitä käytännössä. Ohjelmoinnilla hallitsemme ympäristömme rakenteita ja laitteita. Älykäs suunnittelu on kaiken edellytys!

Science & coding event for children. Primarily in Finnish but language can be adjusted (Finnish-English). Organised in collaboration between the City of Tampere, Tiedeka & Kodarit.
