Smart City Hub

‘Smart City Hub’ can help Lyngby become a Smart City

The hub creates collaborations across participants

Since February 2017, thirteen Smart City Hubs have been held and not two hubs have been the same. Theme, pitcher and participants have been different from time to time, and this has helped the hub to remain dynamic and shaped by its participants. Due to the hub, several new collaborations have emerged across participants, new concepts and projects have been established, and several participants have expressed great enthusiasm for the concept.
Ideas and solutions generated at the last four hubs are now available via link under each theme.

Smart City Hubs in 2018 (5-8 pm at DTU Library):

Smart City and BIG DATA has become a major topic in Denmark. More and more urban operational tasks are linked to real data, which can be used for the development and optimization of new technology and ultimately contribute to a more cohesive city. To achieve success with Smart City technologies it is, among other things, necessary to provide an overview of data and coordinate efforts among the city’s actors. The City of Knowledge is therefore launching ‘Smart City Hub’ – a common platform for the development of Smart City projects.


‘Smart City Hub’ is a physical place that creates cooperation, meetings and solutions across students, businesses, researchers and Lyngby-Taarbæk Municipality all working with data and hardware on a technical and/or at business level.

In the hub, it is possible to meet like-minded people with different backgrounds, and work, test and match each other on development needs, tools and competencies on Smart City technology. The mantra behind the hub is that everyone contributes with something – with data, ideas, skills, resources or tools. The hub will be facilitated by experts and a relevant Smart City-theme such as supply, buildings, planning or mobility will be discussed as a theme at the hub.

Smart City Hub is held once a month and in English.
