Come and test your smart solution in the European Green Capital!
The Tehnopol Science and Business Park has a range of different accelerators that can support the work of companies big and small. Businesses can also use the test city facilities to try out their innovative solutions. Major emphasis is put on how to create and support an environment where green technology companies, together with companies working on health technology and smart city solutions, can develop sustainably and grow.
Companies of different sizes are welcome to come and test their innovative solutions in the real urban environment of the test city, where hundreds of businesses are working each day. The Tehnopol network of mentors provides support for businesses from every angle.
In 2023, Tehnopol and its partners are launching the NATO DIANA innovation accelerator, which will support early-stage, deeptech startups from across the region and help them reach the world’s largest clients and investors through a wide international network. Accelerators, a network of test centres, and a database of trustworthy capital will also be launched for startups from across the Alliance. The DIANA accelerator will bring together several local test environments for new technology from the University of Tartu, TalTech, Foundation CR14, and the National Defence College. All the companies involved in the accelerator will have access to some 70 NATO testing centres.
Test in Tallinn – Tallinn is the city of smart solutions
Tehnopol has run the Tallinnovation innovation competition jointly with the city of Tallinn for several years now, and it has given companies the chance to try out their smart solutions in an urban environment. The opportunities for testing will soon be expanded even further, as Tallinn wants to use its year as European Green Capital to promote the benefits of the city as a green innovation testing environment and a European centre of excellence to experts and to the world more generally and show it as a place where specialists are working on the model for sustainable development and management of the city.
The strength of Estonia and of Tallinn is their small size and flexibility, and the openness of their societies to technology, which encourages the development and application of innovative solutions, including testing of prototypes on a small scale in a real environment after their first trials, and the flexible scaling-up of successful solutions. This experience has led Tallinn to its ambition of designing an attractive operating environment in the capital where various green technologies can be tested to help both domestic and foreign companies get their products and services to other urban environments around the globe.
