Prop­Tech clus­ter, digi­tal inno­va­tions in the pro­per­ty and con­struc­tion busi­ness

The circle is divided into sectors in which the icons depict the following segments clockwise: Smart waste solutions and recycling, Energy solutions, Digitalisation of construction technology, Property maintenance, Well-being services, Smart mobility, Shared commodities and spaces.

The aim of the pro­ject is to crea­te a Prop­Tech clus­ter in the Oulu region. This clus­ter will inclu­de com­pa­nies, deve­lop­ment orga­ni­sa­tions, and RDI (research, deve­lop­ment, inno­va­tions) orga­ni­sa­tions. Based on a com­pe­tence ana­ly­sis of the clus­ter mem­bers, joint focus the­mes will be selec­ted. Ove­rarc­hing the­mes in the actions of the clus­ter will inclu­de advancing low-car­bon solu­tions and pro­ducts, pro­mo­ting digi­ta­li­sa­tion, and ensu­ring infor­ma­tion and data secu­ri­ty. The aim is to form an acti­ve and func­tio­nal clus­ter which the mem­bers will want to furt­her deve­lop after this pro­ject.

The Prop­Tech Oulu clus­ter will coo­pe­ra­te with Prop­Tech Fin­land and inter­na­tio­nal Prop­Tech orga­ni­sa­tions. The aim with the inter­na­tio­nal acti­vi­ties are to inc­rea­se the visi­bi­li­ty and export poten­tial of com­pa­nies in the Oulu region, and to att­ract inter­na­tio­nal financing and deve­lop­ment orga­ni­sa­tions to Oulu. The Prop­Tech pro­ject has the aim to deve­lop models for bet­ter uti­li­sa­tion of local pilo­ting and deve­lop­ment infra­struc­tu­res such as the Hybrid labo­ra­to­ry at Oulu Uni­ver­si­ty of Applied Sciences, Smart Cam­pus, Busi­ness Ase­ma, and the upco­ming Housing Fair 2025 district in Oulu. This will be done through joint­ly selec­ted demos (proof-of-concept) at the deve­lop­ment sites. Also, new joint deve­lop­ment pro­jects and offe­rings will be iden­ti­fied. Com­pe­tence and educa­tio­nal needs will be iden­ti­fied in the pro­ject, and an action plan will be made to ensu­re avai­la­bi­li­ty of com­pe­tent work­force in the Prop­Tech area.

The novel­ty value of the pro­ject is to iden­ti­fy pre­sent oppor­tu­ni­ties and chal­len­ges of the rat­her tra­di­tio­nal and local pro­per­ty and con­struc­tion sec­tor, with the help of the strong, inter­na­tio­nal­ly acti­ve ICT sec­tor in the Oulu region. The chal­len­ges will not be sol­ved by a single ope­ra­tor but by many dif­fe­rent com­pa­nies and ope­ra­ti­ves.
