Join 6th‭ ‬Global Future Center Summit Copenhagen‭ + ‬Malmo‭ + ‬Lund‭ 6-8th May 2018!

The theme of this Summit is Bridges: Co-Creating Impact Across Borders.

In this nomadic, three-day prototyping Lab, we will visit and experience several world class Future Centers and Innovation Centers to explore and co-create new ways to drive impact in diverse settings, using insights and learnings from the places we visit, the Future Center operating principles, and the multi-intelligence that you and other participants bring.

The Summit is like a pop-up prototyping lab, testing new ways of thinking and working, using real world challenges as an agenda, and real world locations as our playing field. Themes we expect to explore include:

  • How to leverage cross-cultural diversity, creativity and passion for societal change
  • How to use a visioning process to bring 2050 up close and personal
  • How to orchestrate cross border collaboration to deal with boundary-spanning issues
  • Wise places: How to create 3rdgeneration Future Centers which put knowledge into practice and strive to achieve wisdom

Each Future Center Summit is a journey, and for the first time this Future Center Summit will be a cross-border journey both geographically and metaphorically.

Service design competition organized by Aaltoes attracted young talents to Urban Mill

On 23rd of April, Urban Mill welcomed 30 innovative and young talents in a rapid prototyping workshop and competition organized by Aalto Entrepreneurship Society Aaltoes and sponsored by Fjord.


Participant of this workshop-competition were international and multidisciplinary people who wanted to spend a day, learning how to get real with sketches and ideas and building them in a short time.

Fjord as a service design agency walked participants through the process, from Discovery to Describe and Design. Participants worked on the real service design case of Aurinkomatkat and did their very best to redesign their service in a short time.

At the end of the day, the stakeholder got surprised by the quality of works achieved in a short time and evaluated all the works and selected the best one.

13000 kävijää testasi Espoo-päivän mobiilipalvelua!

Espoossa kokeillaan ja kehitetään yhdessä!

Urban Mill tuotti Espoo-päivän osallistujien käyttöön mobiilipalvelun proton ja testasi sitä 30.8.2014 Espoo-päivän tapahtumpaikoilla. Palvelu syntyi Espoon Innovation Gardenissa ja sen teknologia-alustasta vastasi Bonwal Oy.

Palvelua käytti testivuorokauden aikana runsas 13.000 käyttäjää.  Some-linkkien kautta palveluun tuli  500 ja tapahtumapaikkojen QR/NFC-tägien kautta 100 osallistujaa. Urban Mill kokoaa kokemukset yhteen, jatkokehittää sitä ja tuotteistaa palvelun myös muiden kaupunkitapahtumien käyttöön.
