“Smart Happiness” was the theme of this year’s Nordic Edge Conference and Expo, being organised for the third time in Triangulum’s Lighthouse City Stavanger from 26th to 28th September 2017.

Nordic Edge aims at being the most important arena in the Nordics for knowledge exchange and inspiration to creators of smarter businesses, smarter homes and smarter cities. By bringing together the best thinkers and the best doers, Nordic Edge Expo is a not-to-be-missed arena for ideas exchange, inspiration, insights and action. This year’s Nordic Edge brought together 4500 attendees from over 40 countries.
Triangulum was directly involved in several activities during Nordic Edge.

On 27th September, Damian Wagner, coordinator of Triangulum, gave a presentation on the project within the plenary session.

A safari was organised to “Visit a Smart Home” (taking place on 27th September) by project partner Lyse. Experts from Lyse presented the home that is equipped with all the features making a home smart – including solutions of the future for heating, lighting, sun-screening, ventilation, entertainment platforms, security, video communication and front door control.

During all three days, a joint booth of Triangulum together with the other eight European funded Smart City Lighthouse projects took place at the Nordic Edge exhibition area. Partners of the Triangulum consortium and of the other Lighthouse projects informed the visitors on their projects and the latest developments.
Furthermore, the workshop “Leading the Way to a Smart Future – Meet the New Lighthouse Cities”, co-organised by Greater Stavanger and the Stavanger Region European Office on 27th September, gave the Lighthouse Cities of the two projects mySMARTLife and RUGGEDISED the possibility to present themselves.
