Tampere has a comprehensive urban development strategy focusing on smart sustainable city and innovation (see: http://growsmarttogether.fi/smart-ecosystem-themes).
Through the international Demola network (http://capetown.demola.net/), Tampere has established contacts with universities and the local start up scene in Cape Town. Tampere also works with countries such as Brazil and Australia within the Open and Agile Smart Cities network (http://www.oascities.org/list-of-cities/)
Our smart sustainable city strategy focuses on six main themes, which are: smart mobility; smart industry; smart health; smart infrastructure; smart buildings; smart government and citizen; and smart education. Our priorities for the World Cities cooperation would be urban economy and mobility, since they best match with our Smart Tampere strategy priorities.
