Business Challenge wave 4 open

Business Challenge wave 4 open

Do you have an innovative idea that contributes to the development of the Brainport Smart District? A concept, a product or service or a method that gives substance to the program lines of BSD (participation, mobility, health, data, circularity, social & safe and energy)? You can now submit your idea via the Business Challenge up to and including 29 February 2020.

The smartest neighborhood in the world
Brainport Smart District offers a platform and a platform to develop innovations and bring them to the market. This can be commercial products, but also initiatives from private individuals or other innovative ideas. The neighborhood is being developed together with future residents, companies, knowledge institutions and governments. These parties are already actively involved and have an important role in both the general development and the projects within BSD.

Platform and stage
Initiators who participate in the Business Challenge automatically become members of the Business Network. Companies and other initiators find each other in this to come up with new ideas and projects. New consortia and new projects have often emerged from this.

The initiatives that start as a project in BSD will also have an international stage in both media and business relationships. For example, projects are invited to participate in Smart City missions and companies / initiators are brought into contact with national and international media to talk about their innovation.

Contact
Do you have a question or comment regarding the Business Challenge? You can ask this via business@brainportsmartdistict.nl. On the Organization page you can also see which person is approachable on which subject and you will find contact details.

Wij zijn IN (We are IN)

Wij zijn IN (We are IN)

How do you want to live in society as it is today and in the future? The Wij zijn IN living concept focuses on collaboration between and with (future) residents who want more than a standard residential product.

Innovation, collaboration and sustainability are key in the ambitions of the Brainport region. That is why Wij zijn IN wants to develop the living concept for BSD together, in which the starting principles are technology, data and focus on the future.

From the start the (future) residents will be involved in the design and in the decision-making on BSD and the use of new technology. Residents are actively involved in and jointly responsible for their own environment.
The feasibility of the proposal is currently being investigated. If the outcome is positive, the proposal may well become a reality.

Join in! (Dutch only)

The first step on the way towards making Wij zijn IN a success is to attract (future) residents. The more people join in and get on board, the bigger the chance that the concept continues.

Register with WijzijnIn.nl and fill IN the questionnaire!

If you register, you will be kept informed on the project and involved in new developments.

Circular mixed sustainable district

Circular mixed sustainable district

Circular mixed sustainable district

The DGVGroupconsortium contributes with a sustainable smart circular district integrated in a high-quality landscape and in food-providing nature.

The district is designed in order to make optimum use of natural conditions, such as solar rotation in summer and winter, wind directions, north and south side of the home, soil condition, etc. Through smart design and process management an optimum combination of lowtech and hightech solutions is created: with the best from the past, the comfort of the present and readiness for the future.

Disruptive project development, sustainable architecture, choice of materials, circular design of infrastructure, energy balancing, use of water, local food production and circular use of (organic) waste. The DGVGroup team has developed these for ReGen Villages and other projects. The district we will be building in Brainport Smart District is energy-generating, reduces the CO2 footprint and contributes to the health and welfare of its residents. We will create jointly with the residents and collaboration partners ‘the Blossom of Brainport’, a circular integrated district with functions for food production, water purification and circular infrastructure that extend beyond the area itself.

The feasibility of the proposal is currently being investigated. If the outcome is positive, the proposal may well become a reality.

The greenhouse homes of CC-Studio

KasCo is a circular residential area in which food, energy and living go hand in hand. Here, you can live in a low-energy home in a greenhouse with fresh fruit and vegetable just outside your door.

The frame of the greenhouse home is made of wood and can be taken apart. Separating the bearing frame and the inside layout makes the house extremely adaptive. This allows residents to create a unique, personalised home within the uniform shell.

The wind and waterproof shell offers many additional benefits: breathing outer walls, ample outside space in the greenhouse and integration of plants (urban farming). And the concept is already a reality: the first KasCo has been built in Amsterdam.

The feasibility of the proposal is currently being investigated. If the outcome is positive, the proposal may well become a reality.

Wanted: innovative residents for our Brandevoort LAB!

In the Brandevoort LAB of Brainport Smart District residents of the present Brandevoort district are invited and challenged join us in developing new products and services that may be realised in the new smart district Brandevoort.

The Brandevoort LAB is a ‘living lab’ for the future of residential living. Together with residents of present-day Brandevoort, the foundation Brainport Smart District and its partners (knowledge institutions and businesses) will test concepts and products, refine ideas, and explore the future, both online and offline.

With our co-creative and participatory way of working, we will ensure together that innovations for the new district will later be well matched to the wishes, needs and daily life of the residents.

How you can join in the Brandevoort LAB will vary from one project to the another, depending on what you want and what organisations want to know or test. It may for example be a survey, a product test or a meeting with residents to discover their wishes and ideas.

In the Brandevoort LAB we focus on a healthy, socially inclusive and safe district, with smart mobility, where data belongs to the residents, an energy-positive district that uses water smartly, a circular district or a mix of these.

Brandevoort LAB will kick off in the summer of 2019. Are you interested in getting to work together with us and our partners? Do you have ideas about smart living and working? Would you like to develop, test and evaluate new concepts, techniques and materials? And do you want to know what new developments there are already in terms of energy, mobility, data, safety, health and/or circular construction? Then register here.

BSD Smartwalk route

Embedded Fitness develops interactive exercise concepts. The company connects sensors and communication technology to fitness equipment so people are challenged to get fit in a fun way.

In BSD, Embedded Fitness focuses on developing a Smartwalk route lined with SmartStones (posts with beacons inside) that can connect to a smartphone, so that users can walk a particular route through the district. The posts give feedback with LEDs to users that have selected a game or exercise on their app.

The posts work with low-power components and can be charged with solar cells, so that the system is energy-neutral.

Embedded Fitness has been recognised nationally as a SportInnovator centre for Bewegen in het Onderwijs (Exercise In Education). The centre acts as a breeding ground for knowledge institutions, businesses, authorities and schools, in order to contribute positively with evidence-based technological innovations to sports participation to increasing enjoyment of exercising, and to improving the learning performance of young people.

The feasibility of the proposal is currently being investigated. If the outcome is positive, the proposal may well become a reality.

Smart Living with Solarix

Tomorrow’s built-up environments, like in Brainport Smart District, present many challenges: everything must be greener, healthier and smarter. While technology offers many possibilities, it is not the only answer for the future.

There must be a mix of beauty, data and clever use of space, linking city, building and humans. This is what Solarix does. We transform solar energy into design, give buildings an identity and create value for the environment.

Solarix believes in a future in which all outer walls generate energy. That is why Solarix develops beautiful, sustainable, innovative and multifunctional walls.

Solarix is a wall system that minimises depletion of natural resources (sustainable materials and lighting, recyclable) and maximises potential (sustainable energy, data). In fact it is more than just a wall system: it is about designing technology and the energy transition in a way that is attractive for people – it’s an example of a dynamic urban development.

The feasibility of the proposal is currently being investigated. If the outcome is positive, the proposal may well become a reality.

Experience Brainport Smart District with the Digital Twin

Geodan has built a ‘Digital Twin’ of Brainport Smart District, an identical digital copy of reality.

When you make a virtual visit, you can see how the new district is going to look and truly experience and understand it. Smart 3D models based on a range of data give visitors a realistic look into the impact of the plans for the future.

Where do you position solar panels, rows of houses and cycle lanes? The Digital Twin makes ‘the District of the Future’ that BSD now still is, truly concrete.

Using the Digital Twin is a perfect example of how data is used in BSD. Geodan believes that linking data from the physical living environment to how residents experience it is crucial in order to make good choices in the layout of this environment.

The feasibility of the proposal is currently being investigated. If the outcome is positive, the proposal may well become a reality.

Sustainable solutions with LED lighting

In modern society contemporary businesses are expected to contribute to increasing sustainability. LIC helps its customers to do this all over the world, with tailored sustainable solutions in LED lighting, building automation and sustainable energy solutions.

Lighting: the linking pin for information

The street lighting is managed using the Smart City Control System with which the complete lighting grid can be controlled with a simple click from anywhere in the world.

This system makes it possible to constantly monitor street lighting, obtain operational data in real time, and to decide flexibly for every unit when, where and how much lighting should be switched on, switched off or dimmed. In addition, the street lights can be equipped with a wide range of sensors to gather other types of information, such as air quality, danger, temperature, particulate matter, CO2 level, etcetera.

This will change a lighting system into a new global network, in which the lights become intelligent data carriers that can be used to activate various services to improve liveability and make the city smart, safe and sustainable.

The feasibility of the proposal is currently being investigated. If the outcome is positive, the proposal may well become a reality.
