With the knowledge centre and research programme, we aim to research, develop and realise top level smart city and smart society innovations, building on the strength of the Brainport ecosystem, and support cities (world wide) in accelerating the achievement of their smart city ambitions with exchange of knowledge and experience. We do so through 5 interconnected services:
