Tallinn is the European Green Capital 2023 focusing on how innovation and green governance can offer opportunities to mitigate and adapt to climate change. Tallinn works actively with universities, companies and citizens to integrate a sustainability mindset into all actions, policies, and day -to -day city management to implement the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the local green deal objectives while making the city a better living environment for the citizens.
The capital of Estonia has become a beacon of innovation and technological progress, attracting entrepreneurs, innovators, and tech providers from all over the world. Tallinn has achieved the 10th place in the Innovation Cities: Small 200 Index, which evaluates the innovativeness of cities with fewer than one million residents.
On its European Green Capital year, Tallinn has launched the Test in Tallinn program. The Test in Tallinn program is unique because it offers businesses the chance to test their technologies in a live environment. The program provides access to various testing sites, from roads, streets to buildings, and connects businesses with the right people to help them navigate the testing process. Businesses can use this to accelerate the process of developing new solutions and valuable references for scaling up their businesses. The program is especially suitable for businesses looking to test smart mobility, green energy and energy efficiency solutions and other innovative technologies that require a live environment to test.
