Smart Cities Innovation Space

Smart Cities Innovation Space

The Smart Cities Innovation Space is an innovation hub where, in addition to technical skills and substantive knowledge, 21st century kills are also central, such as system thinking, interdisciplinary cooperation and an entrepreneurial attitude. Within the Smart Cities Innovation Space, students, researchers, governments and companies work together on solutions for major societal challenges, specifically in the field of Smart Cities.

The Smart Cities Innovation Space is a community that develops and enables interdisciplinary hands-on, challenge-based learning, engineering design and entrepreneurship. We offer a place where students learn to cope with complex social and industrial challenges, develop innovative projects with researchers, companies and other stakeholders. Moreover, it offers space and support for teachers who develop and offer hands-on courses and want to contribute to innovation in education.

Wij zijn IN (We are IN)

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.

TU/e students collaborating in ‘team CASA’ are designing and developing a house that will be constructed as a concept in Brandevoort, as a BSD example. CASA stands for Comfortable, Affordable and Sustainable Alternative for Housing in the Netherlands. In September/October 2019 the house, which contains three units, will be built in a short time in the new part of Brandevoort, the district that will be created following BSD principles, which the house of the students is fully compliant with.

The urban vision developed by UNStudio features a number of strips running from north to south that divide the area into several zones, each with a different building density. Shared facilities can be created in the district, such as kitchens, gardens, reading rooms and gyms. There will also be a mix of residential and work, with decentralised business space with offices and shared work spaces aimed at innovative collaborations. In the heart of the district will be a park of some 12 hectares with gardens, natural landscape and sports grounds. The park will be collectively owned by the users: everybody can become a member. At the fringes of the districts there will be 80 hectares for growing food (high-tech agriculture), water storage, nature and energy generation.

Residents draw up joint plan for forty plots

In the autumn of 2018 we started looking for our first residents by calling for DIY plot pioneers to come forward. In this first ‘living lab’ 31 households are currently co-creating the first BSD district. They have found a location where they want to live together. The size of the plots is matched to the personal and shared (living) wishes of the future group of residents and their budgets. The plots project offers future residents a great deal of freedom, but we also expect them to take responsibility. The residents themselves are the initiators and therefore responsible for the realisation of their individual .collective dream spaces. This means they will have to think about and deal with water storage, energy-generating homes and public or shared green spaces. Watch our video
