Test Beds for pushing

Helsingborg has been transformed into a city-wide test bed for exploring smart solutions through collaboration with actors across society – public servants, residents, social entrepreneurs, businesses, academia, regions, other cities, intergovernmental bodies, and non-profit organisations.

A test bed can be a physical or virtual environment for testing new products, services, and processes, and there are numerous test beds emerging throughout the city. Discover some of these below and join H22 in learning, sharing knowledge, and testing our way forward.



Do you have an idea you’d like to develop in one of our test beds?
If you’re interested in our test beds, please get in touch and we’ll help you with contacts.
