Triangulum Project presentation in Norway, 17-18 September 2015
The Triangulum project was presented at the Nordic Edge Expo in Stavanger, Norway. The expo, which gathers creators of smarter cities and smarter homes, aims at becoming Northern Europe’s most important arena for knowledge exchange and inspiration. Smart cities, change-making companies, forward-thinking universities and dynamic organizations are attending the event.
Triangulum’s representatives Alanus von Radecki (Fraunhofer, Germany), Steve Turner (Manchester City Council, UK), Henk Kok (City of Eindhoven, Netherlands) and Tone Grindland (City of Stavanger, Norway) are part of the world-class collection of speakers taking part on the Nordic Edge Expo.
The TRIANGULUM Steering Committee met in Eindhoven on 22nd – 24th June 2015 to discuss the progress of the project and to visit the Lighthouse District Strijp-S, a central development area situated in the former innovation hub of Philips. The project aims at transforming the former area into an innovation district providing the right eco-environment for the development of smart services and start-ups. In order to do that, a variety of different concepts and co-working facilities, exhibition areas, innovation laboratories and business incubators will offer their services and working space to the young companies of tomorrow.
