Innovation and contact

Stockholm’s digital infrastructure, through Stokab’s fibre network, facilitates the services of the future – such as IoT, 5G, data centres for edge processing and edge computing – and creates possibilities to make the concept of a smart city a reality.

It is the City of Stockholm’s ambition to make Stockholm the world’s smartest city by 2040, and a number of exciting development projects are already making it possible for companies to interact with and develop tomorrow’s services in Stockholm today.


The City of Stockholm is actively participating in a number of initiatives aimed at promoting innovation within digitalisation. Please don’t hesitate to contact any of the city’s organisational units, or any of the ongoing projects listed below, if you would like to learn more about how you can get involved, or if you would simply like to receive more information.
