Challenge 2: Digital solutions to develop an online-merge-offline education platform on sustainable development

Education bases like zoos and science museums in China’s megacities (such as cities in the Greater Bay Area) look for digital solutions to build an online-merge-offline (OMO) education platform to provide young people with knowledge and skills education on sustainable development. The platform will set an example for youth learning platform development in the cities under China’s carbon neutral pilot projects.

What are your digital solutions that could help transform traditional education bases (e.g. zoos or science museums) into an OMO education platform for sustainable development?

Please provide a Word document within 2000 words to explain how the solution addresses the challenge in the application form attachments.

Challenge 3: Digital solutions to ease the everyday lives of senior citizens and help them live at home longer

Aging is a global challenge. Most seniors want to live at their beloved family homes as long as possible, but with a declining ability to function, daily chores become difficult. Digital tools can be the solution to senior citizens, more and more of whom are using smart phones and an internet connection daily. What is your digital solution that could ease the everyday lives of senior citizens and help them live home longer?

For questions about the technical details, contact Janne Tähtikunnas janne.tahtikunnas@ril.fi.

Challenge 4: How to reduce energy consumption on single family houses by using affordable digital solution or services?

Helsinki and Japan continue Designing Better Life together! 

Quality healthcare and education lie at the heart of a happy life. The effects of these fields on a person are immediate – potentially life-changing – so they deserve to be designed with care. 

Health and learning are things greatly appreciated by both Japan and Finland. The two countries also excel at ICT and R&D, two skills needed for finding modern solutions. For these reasons, the City of Helsinki invites Japanese companies and investors to join the city’s flourishing ecosystems and begin the exploration of new life-improving solutions together. 

Through these events, the City is presenting Finnish ecosystems, innovative solutions perfect for Japanese markets, and valuable business opportunities in Helsinki to Japanese companies. Join to learn the latest information, the benefits of doing business in Finland, and inspiring stories from various companies. Many Japanese companies and investors have already found trusted partners and valuable business in Helsinki – will you be joining them soon?


Health Education

These events are fully bilingual, accessible in both English and Japanese.

The events are part of the Helsinki Designing Better Life series of events organised by the City of Helsinki and Helsinki Partners in 2021. The previously held webinars, organized with our partner Fukuoka Directive Council, focusing on Smart City and Smart Energy respectively, were successes and opened several valuable relationships between Helsinki and Fukuoka.

The Helsinki Metropolitan area is an excellent location for developing new, innovative health tech solutions. Out of about 400 health-related startups in Finland – one of the largest startup ecosystems in the world –, one hundred are located in Helsinki Metropolitan.

A key feature of the local ecosystem is collaboration: universities, research institutions and companies consistently work together in pursuit of exciting new innovation. Moreover, the City of Helsinki offers opportunities for companies to test their health and well-being innovations in real-life environments, together with end-users and city employees.

The Finnish economy is knowledge-based: it lives and breathes research and innovation. Finland is an exceptional research goldmine thanks to the unique Finnish genetic heritage and the electronic health data records. Moreover, Finland has a wealth of experienced talent for creating new health tech solutions, and a variety of advisors, subcontractors and manufacturers to build complete systems and get regulatory approval.

Finland has built a reputation as an education powerhouse and has a proven track-record as the home of world-class education. Our educational system is based on high-quality comprehensive education that is inclusive and universal.

To improve education and learning worldwide, we are keen to share our know-how. In this inspiring event, we will present some of our leading, research-based education technology companies utilizing AI in their solutions.

Our philosophy is simple: the nature of a child is to want to know new things, to be inquisitive, curious about the world around them, and to experiment with what they learn. Highly competent, dedicated and motivated teachers nurture natural curiosity and place it at the heart of education planning and curricula. The teachers are experts both in their subject areas and pedagogy, the art of teaching.

Finland is also adapting innovative new technologies in teaching and learning. Personalization of education and the changing roles of teachers and learners require smart and research-based solutions to be used in schools.

We believe this leads to an inspiring, yet efficient and productive, learning environment where students have real independence, an active role in what and how they learn, and genuinely hold a key to unlocking their own potential.

フィンランドは教育大国としての地位を築いてきました。世界レベルの教育の本場としての実績は実証済みです。フィンランドの教育制度は、統合的で普遍的、質が高く包括的な教育を基盤としています。

世界中の教育と学びを向上させるため、私たちはノウハウを共有したいと切望しています。この興味深いイベントでは、フィンランドを代表するAIをソリューションとして利用している研究重視の教育テクノロジー企業をご紹介します。

私たちの哲学はシンプルです。子供たちは新しいことを知りたがっています。知識欲があり、彼らを取り巻く世界に好奇心を持ち、学んだことを試してみたいと思っています。大変有能で熱心な意欲ある教師達が自然な好奇心を育み、それを教育計画やカリキュラムの中心に置いています。教師達は科目と教授法の達人です。

フィンランドは教育と学習においても革新的な新しい技術を取り入れています。教育のカスタマイズと教師の役割の変化には、学校で利用するスマートで研究重視のソリューションが必要です。

そのようなソリューションにより、インスピレーションを与えながらも効率的で生産的な学習環境を提供し、生徒達が学習内容と学習方法において真の意味で独立して積極的な役割を果たし、自分自身の可能性を解き放つ鍵を持つことができると確信しています。
