Wondering how citizens can bring the stories of a city to life? With an abundance of data and information sources available in a city, there are many possibilities to tell stories. In the ESSENCE project, we developed new technologies to physically integrate stories to engage citizens in their urban challenges and those of society by extent. After two years, the project has ended and we look back on the results and insights.
As part of the FLAME project, VRT worked together with partners as Disney and Martel Innovate to create a smart media infrastructure in order to experiment with new personalised, localised and interactive media applications. The project is now in its end phase and is looking for proposals from SMEs and startups for new media experiences that make use of 5G networks.
