 Jyväskylän KangasKangas is Jyväskylä’s most important urban development project. Ambitious planning, a smart urban structure and the very latest in municipal engineering is combined to create a unique, high quality environment for residents and enteprises. In the future Kangas will provide home to more than 2100 jobs and 5000 people. A number of businesses already operate in Kangas. The first residents will move to Kangas in 2017.

SMART KANGAS

Captivating, experimental, service-minded, beautiful, resource-wise – a beloved child has many names. Kangas can be descibed in many ways, but the best word to describe it is smart.

Smart Kangas comprises resource-wise and smart solutions for the area. In addition it is secure across all sectors. A vital role is played by Smart City ICT solutions. Of the clever ICT solutions employed at Kangas the most important are electronic locking, smart and real-time monitoring of energy consumption and new solutions for parking. Another key consideration at Kangas is cyber security, the aim being to make Kangas the most cyber secure area of the world’s most stable country.

Supported by Tekes [the Finnish Funding Agency for Innovation], the 5K project has been launched at Kangas. In this project the University of Jyväskylä and Ericsson together with its partner network are developing and testing new smart solutions for the area’s residents and businesses. Within the 5K project efforts will be directed at developing a test platform for completely new smart city applications and services by combining sensor data gathered from a number of sources. The services to be trialled will be based on needs collected from a variety of parties at Kangas and will be implemented in rapid test cycles.

Smart Kangas is also much, much more: Living lab environments, solar power, shared parking, new models of housing for the elderly, an area portal and so on. Investments in Kangas will total approximately EUR 1 billion.
