Flanders’ smart city flagships take part in Smart City Expo
A total of ten Flanders-based companies and institutes – flagships of Flanders’ innovative business ecosystem for smart city developments – will be represented at FIT’s booth at Smart City Expo. The organizations involved are: Acceleran, DSP Valley, HOPLR, Hydroscan, imec, Living Tomorrow, Locate in Limburg, LRD/KU Leuven, Rombouts Holding (Rombit) and Settlemint.
Each of the participants will present a range of innovative technological applications that can help improve the quality of life in urban environments: from digital communication platforms to mobile applications.
In addition, the FIT stand will host representatives of Antwerp and Ghent. These cities come together under the moniker ‘Smart Cities in a Smart Region’. On 14 and 15 November, an official delegation of the Smart Flanders support program will visit the exposition as well, with representatives of Flanders’ 13 main cities – referred to as ‘centrumsteden’ or ‘central cities’. The delegation is led by imec, Flanders’ strategic research center for nanotechnology and digital innovation.
Flanders has a lot to offer in terms of smart city applications. Cities such as Antwerp and Ghent are making strong headway in this respect. FIT will utilize its presence at Smart City Expo to put companies from Flanders in the limelight, and to engage with potential foreign investors and partners.
