ECIU Creathon for Smarter Regional Development

FRI 14 - MON 17 september 2018
LocatioN: Designlab

Digitalisation, Urbanisation, Climate Change, Sustainability… How do these global trends affect our daily lives and how challenging can they be for the cities that we live in? What is our view on the future of our region and how can we develop our own smart environment on a regional scale?


During the third weekend of September (14-17) we will explore these challenges together with students and professionals, focusing on smarter regional development. The aim is to develop concrete solutions on challenges introduced by various regions in the broader themes of Digitalisation, Urbanisation & Climate Change, and Sustainability.

The weekend is organised by Novel-T and DesignLab University of Twente for ECIU (European Consortium of Innovative Universities) members and their triple-helix partners, along with Enschede smart city alliances.
