Calling innovative knowledge projects!

Contribute to the development of new knowledge for The Hague, the city that is working to develop a Central Innovation District (CID) and to strengthen the urban environment and its residents. Join in on the Challenge CID Knowledge Lab 2018!

The Hague is on the move: the city is growing and becoming increasingly diverse in terms of its population and residential and work environments. The sizeable area around three of the city’s public transport hubs (Central Station, Holland Spoor and Laan van Nieuw Oost-Indië) presents new innovation opportunities for the city. The Hague’s growth has become increasingly reliant on the strength of its knowledge economy. And the development of this sizeable area will serve as a vehicle for knowledge development in its own right: knowledge about the area itself, about the city and its neighbourhoods, about the strength of The Hague’s citizens and the challenges they face.

In other words, contributing to the development of this Central Innovation District (CID) means working with a knowledge development vehicle. Learning about complex developments is only possible – and indeed worthwhile – when we work together. That is why we are entering into a dialogue with a wide range of parties, including private companies, government agencies and local residents. This will be a partnership between the metropolitan area, the region, the city, districts and neighbourhoods; but also between various sectors, disciplines and sites. This is how we can arrive at new knowledge and gain new insights. Can we count you in?
