We do innovation workshops, online crowdstormings, and smart city newsfeeds. We create and test prototypes and design methods to trigger ideas and feedback in our community and the public.


What we do

Ideation Sessions

We do regular open design thinking sessions on various smart city topics in cooperation with innovative urban projects and startups. We let our participants share skills, ideate, build prototypes, and test them. Free of charge, highly energetic, a lot of fun.



Through our Periscope Channel we live stream our sessions and other smart city related events to draw attention from an online crowd around the globe interested in smart city topics. We launch challenges to receive ideas, and ideas for feedback and iterations.
