Brainport Smart District

The aim is to develop the smartest and most sustainable residential area (smart city) in the world in Brandevoort, Helmond. Brainport Smart District will be the residential area of the future with a size of 1,500 homes and 12 ha of business space to be built between 2020 and 2030. BSD offers a living lab environment for testing and valorising the latest scientific insights and techniques and thus serves as a scaling up facility and internationally as an example for the urban development of the future. The fact that the district will be built entirely new creates the opportunity to implement and test the current socially relevant innovations and systems in the areas of participation, health, data, smart mobility, energy and built environment from the outset and in mutual coherence.
