Summary Top
The city of Enschede aims for a strong position in the field of knowledge and ICT. The presence of the University of Twente and a considerable number of knowledge-intensive companies provide an important basis for this position. Enschede wishes to promote further ICT-development by realising an optimal physical and organisational framework and infrastructure. This implies providing adequate room for ICT-activities, ensuring (digital) accessibility and encouraging ICT-awareness of the citizens and workforce. The project focuses on determining and implementing a vision on critical factors for success for the development of an ICT-city and a science park in particular. The implementation of an ICT-strategy is part of the project.
