Projects

Leuven MindGate aims to put the Leuven region on the map. One way how we do this is through participation in local and international projects which benefit the whole region.

International House Leuven

With 157 different nationalities, the Leuven MindGate region has a distinct international character. In order to better accommodate international knowledge workers, a one stop shop was needed. This one top shop will be an International House in Leuven.

The city's provision of services in welcoming and support, integration, the International School of Leuven, Leuven MindGate's headquarters and several language institutes will soon call International House Leuven their new home.

Imagine a mobile application that guides you to a free parking spot or automatically edits your running itinerary to areas with the lowest air pollution, all backed by data gathered through smart technology spread across town. That's what Smart City is all about. 

Numerous Leuven MindGate members are currently cooperating in order to work out advanced ideas around smart technology.
