“Think globally, act locally” is the strategy of our FIWARE innovation hubs. The FIWARE Foundation supports these local iHubs in order to enrich their services, to build a network of tech-enabling communities and to encourage the formation of internet-based businesses at a local level. We are pleased to announce that the network of FIWARE iHubs continuous to grow and look forward to welcoming Detecon FIWARE iHub Cologne to the community.

Detecon FIWARE iHub Forum 2019

The official launch of this brand new iHub will be taking place on March 21st, 2019 in Cologne, Germany during the Detecon FIWARE iHub Forum 2019.

Detecon believes citizens are the most important assets of cities and communities. They have therefore been asking themselves “How can we work together to help to make our cities better places to live?”. Though they haven’t found the answer to this question yet, they will be using cooperation, fostering innovation and co-creation engaging all stakeholders as a starting point.

The iHub in Cologne will be a platform for citizens, businesses, academia, and urban administration cooperation. The goal? To make our towns and cities vital, thriving social and economic innovation ecosystems. We’re all for that and look forward to working together with the Detecon FIWARE iHub in Cologne to help them reach their goal.
