Vibrant city as a plat­form for com­pa­nies (EKA)

From plat­forms into busi­ness

Vibrant City as a Platfrom (Elin­voi­mai­nen kau­pun­ki alus­ta­na, EKA) is a plat­form-based model for new pro­ducts and ser­vices. It is being deve­lo­ped in part­ners­hip with the city, enterpri­ses, research ins­ti­tu­tions, and uni­ver­si­ties.  Plat­forms and co-deve­lop­ment are still a new way of doing things, and that is why one of the goals in EKA is to furt­her enhance coo­pe­ra­tion with various ins­ti­tu­tions and com­pa­nies in Oulu. The model will be imple­men­ted in the eve­ry­day life of cities and busi­nes­ses through pilot pro­jects. In addi­tion, the pro­ject and its pilots will cont­ri­bu­te to a busi­ness model and a busi­ness plan that clear­ly desc­ri­be the process of a plat­form-based model, neces­sa­ry resources and other inputs as well as the results to be achie­ved.
