Speed to market increased
Lahti was able to bring the CitiCAP into the market very fast.
"The application developed in the CitiCAP project is a great example of a functioning collaboration without which we would not have been able to get this far"
The idea of the city of Lahti was unique. Lahti aimed to build a platform that gathers mobility data, convert it to a personal carbon footprint, and utilize it also for personal credits at the carbon trading marketplace. The schedule was tight and such a platform did not exist.
