Knowledge lab about the city of the future: call for projects

9 April 2018

Are you a researcher, lecturer, doctoral candidate or official working in The Hague and would you like to help accumulate knowledge for the Central Innovation District (CID)? Your research may actually make an important contribution to knowledge development in the context of the CID. Do you have an interesting idea for an innovative research project? Send in your proposal.

Four separate parties (the Municipality of The Hague, Leiden University, Delft University of Technology and The Hague University of Applied Sciences) have joined forces in a new partnership. They aim to work towards the establishment of a Knowledge Lab, in which researchers, lecturers, officials, international guests, doctoral candidates and graduating students will be jointly studying the city of the future. Their activities range from graduation projects by BA or MA students, in collaboration with senior researchers, and doctoral research programmes to research projects that have received extra funding from NWO or the EU, for example.

The challenge before us is to examine the new questions of the city of the future and to develop new innovation practices. Every year, we intend to organise a dedicated CID Working Conference in November. This conference will offer a podium for original ideas and innovative projects that present a solution (or partial solution) for specific challenges within the CID. This will allow us to develop the substantive knowledge required to realise the ambitions of CID The Hague.
