SCIC is a cluster composed of its members. All the facilitation, advisory, and export services are available exclusively for the member organisations. The cooperative provides an efficient way for members to produce and export smart city solutions through co-creation. 

The Expertise Platform works as a launchpad for cooperation. It combines the cluster organisations, challenges are announced and applied, and focus groups are operated on the platform by Skillhive. Member, click yourself into the member area below. 

Global Network

The global network enables scaling the solutions. By finding similar challenges  around the world, the solutions may be applied with a moderate modification. By this, they can make a bigger impact - and create remarkable business opportunities. 

The main operations of SCIC are to exchange and export professionals, knowledge, and solutions. Combining the solution makers to challenges and facilitating the co-creation process, we solve global challenges.
