Our aim is to be able to make our data open as a public player. Open data is an asset that also creates business opportunities for companies and reflects positively on the image of Kuopio and its role as a pioneer.

Savilahti is a district of the future. It will be a unique living environment in many ways also in the years to come. Savilahti combines diverse living, studying, research and jobs.
