The Smart City Experience Lab, recently opened its doors in order to provide an exciting experience to European decision-makers, smart-city professionals, entrepreneurs and citizens and to meet and share knowledge on smart cities. A wide variety of innovations are displayed on city challenges, such as energy, mobility and climate. The exposition combines interactive digital elements with a live tour, lectures, meet-ups and more.

Basically the goal of the lab is to display several innovations in a ‘kijkdoos’ showbox (a ‘kijkdoos’ is something typically Dutch. Information regarding the innovation is displayed on Smart ID Cards – a brief information card with the answers to several key questions. During the exposition Amsterdam Smart City will be organizing a series of lectures and workshops explaining the Smart City concept further. A web application will support the exposition online.

Not only can you learn more about the lessons and solutions of the City-zen project. The experience lab can be a great starting point for a real smart city experience in Amsterdam. Get inspired by the solutions in the lab and explore them in the city with your delegation.
