OP Zuid Smart Infra project - Development of an educational program for employees working in the infrastructure branche: traffic-, street lighting and sewerage systems. The aim is to educate the future smart engineers and smart maintainers.
Results of interviews show that smart infrastructure plays a role at various levels: the sector itself is strongly influenced by government (state, province, municipality) that have social issues such as road safety. They have to control this, but they do not have "implementation capacity", because it is decentralized, to the companies in the infrastructure sector. The infrastructure industry, in turn, has the technical know-how (is supposed to have it), but needs to channel the "wild ideas" from governance.
