Brainport Smart District (BSD) is a smart city district in the city of Helmond, the Netherlands. It’s located in the high-tech innovative region ‘Brainport’. The latest insights and techniques about participation, health, data, mobility, energy and circularity are used here to create a sustainable and beautiful environment. BSD will be a smart living and working area in which residents play a central role in the development of their own living environment. The development of BSD is a co-creation process between residents, professionals and other stakeholders. This new part of Brandevoort will function as a ‘living lab’ for the development and testing of new products, services and systems. BSD strives for a new smart district that does not burden, pollute or exhaust our planet further. A district that adds technological significance to the lives of the people who will live there or use the district. The district is not the sum of ‘individual’ smart city components, but the environment has been designed from the start in conjunction with new insights and technology in the areas of transport, health, energy generation and storage. The realization and development of BSD takes place via eight different program lines, namely; Circular district, Participation, Social and safe district, Healthy district, Digital district, Mobile district, District with Energy and District with water.
