Pioneering EU Smart Regions, Dipoli Espoo 26 April 2013 Markku Markkula EU Committee of the Regions CoR, Rapporteur on “Horizon 2020” and Rapporteur of “Closing the Innovation Divide” Committee of the Regions: Towards Smart Regions and Cities There is a huge gap between the latest research knowledge and real life practice. What do we need to do to fill it? CoR has defined the following guidelines: 1.Europe needs pioneering regions to be forerunners in implementing the EU2020 and through that to invent the desired future. 2.Lifelong learning and the full use of ICT are cornerstones for this change of mindset towards entrepreneurship and innovation. 3.We need the dynamic understanding of regional innovation ecosystems where public, private and third sector learn to operate together. Modernize Triple Helix. 4.We need methodologies to mobilize public private partnerships and encourage especially people participations: user-driven open innovation & living labs. 5.We need to speed up the change by scalability & implementation.

Regional Innovation Ecosystem Aalto University Campus 2020 According to the plans, by 2020, there will be new investments of 4-5 billion €: metro, tunnel construction of ring road, other infra, housing, office and business buildings, public services, university buildings, sports and cultural facilities…NokiaAaltoUniversity Rovio Tapiola Garden City EIT ICT Lab Laurea Young entrepreneurial mindset
Aalto City Integrating Real and Virtual Worlds Aalto University campus with its surrounding business and residence areas is the innovation hub of the Helsinki Region. This picture is based on the Energizing Urban Ecosystems research program. The program with its € 20 million multidisciplinary research integrates new science, art and business developments to working in a virtual environment. Regional Information Modeling is the breakthrough dimension in this research.
Building Information Modelling (BIM) is used in controlling single construction process in order to record physical and activity based features in a digital form. The resulting building information models become shared knowledge resources to support decision-making about a facility from earliest conceptual stages, through design and construction through its operational life and eventual demolition. Regional Information Model can be considered as a similar presentation of a larger area of built environment, that can be further used e.g. for virtual city planning. Regional Information Model could be a reliable and trustworthy basis for lifetime engineering supporting new value adding activities and decision making. Regional Information Modeling
“Committee of the Regions (CoR) points out that management of the built environment and urban planning are sectors with a high impact on the local economy as well as on the quality of the living environment. New developments in information management can play a crucial role in achieving the goal of establishing an ambitious new climate regime. Building Information Modelling (BIM) is actively used in facility management to provide a digital representation of the physical and functional characteristics of a facility. The concepts of BIM should be extended to regional and urban planning. It could then serve as a shared knowledge resource for an area, forming a reliable basis for life-cycle analysis, user-driven business process development and value ‑ creating decision-making.” Towards Regional Information Modeling (CdR CdR 104/2010 fin) OPINION of the Committee of the Regions on the DIGITAL AGENDA FOR EUROPE, approved by the CoR Plenary on 6 October 2010

EU Calls for Transformation: Europe needs pioneering regions, as pathfinders and rapid prototypes. Helsinki Region has forerunner instruments in use: Aalto Design Factory Aalto Venture Garage Aalto Camp for Societal Innovation and many more … Have a look at: www.aaltodesignfactory.fi Markku Markkula CoR & Aalto University Mindset Situation when Aalto started in 2010
