UNSense, orchestrator and partners
As creator and guardian of the ‘Living Lab concept, UNSense will act as orchestrator of the process, directing public private collaborations and partnerships between the different parties. Over the coming months UNSense will further build three consortia: one for the construction of the houses and the infrastructure, a tech consortium for the construction of the innovative urban data platform and a consortium for the development of the services related to the areas of living, mobility, food and health. To bring the project to life, UNSense is has already brought together a wide range of stakeholders, including local governments, research institutions, potential service and building partners. We are proud to announce VolkerWessels companies SDK Vastgoed and VolkerWessels Telecom will develop and build the 100 houses and the underlying infrastructure (energy, telecom, water and sewerage). These “smart homes” form the basis for the operation of the Urban Data Platform. VolkerWessels aims to learn and develop in an innovative way, thereby contributing positively to current and future quality of life.
