University of Copenhagen | SCIENCE Innovation Hub and the Municipality of Frederiksberg present ’Smart City Challenge Frederiksberg 2018’. Our goal is to solve urban challenges, and you are invited.
Come and be a part of a team developing innovative solutions for Frederiksberg’s challenges, and make the city even smarter to live and work in. The solutions should make the area more attractive to residents, businesses and visitors. These could be new services, processes, behaviours, apps, websites, games, robot technologies, AI, data, gadgets etc.
As a participant, you have the opportunity to develop your network, get three fun, fully catered days, and maybe leave with a great business idea. The weekend is completely free, and you will also be competing for an attractive entrepreneur prize. Challenge us! The good smart city solution is innovative, feasible, user-friendly, and uses the city’s data.
Everyone can take part. So if you are a student, a professional, an entrepreneur, or something entirely different – you are welcome.
We hope that people with many different backgrounds and competences will come, so that we can solve the complex and cross disciplinary challenges that we are faced with.
The only expectation we have of you, is that you are open to collaboration, idea generation, and that you have an interest for data driven innovation and smart, urban solutions.
Expect three intense and informative days in collaboration with other enthusiasts, with a strong focus on developing concepts for solutions to predefined smart city cases.
All you need to bring is an open mind, your computer and its charger. We will provide you with food and refreshments the entire weekend.
Cancellations must be submitted minimum a week before the event to email@example.com. If you don’t attend without cancelling, you will be charged a no-show fee of 500 dkk.
Below you can see the cases.

In 2018, Frederiksberg will be the first city in Denmark to be covered by a wireless network. It enables us to collect and present data about the city’s use. We share our data with you, so that together we can create new business opportunities and value for the city.
Smart City is an approach to the city’s challenges where we create data driven solutions that use the technological possibilities of the city, in collaboration with the residents and businesses.
A smart city is a city where we have the tools and the data to make better decisions, foresee problems, solve issues proactively, and coordinate resources, so that the city functions effectively.
