Working on Innovation in ICT together

The world is changing rapidly and drastically. Certainly when it comes to ICT. In a changing society, innovation is the only to way keep up. Innovation is created by working together, co-creation and cooperation. Among companies and schools. This is what we focus on everyday at the Fontys ICT Innovation Lab in the Innovation District Strijp-T in Eindhoven. In this historical environment, partners come together in an atmosphere of open innovation. SPARC* is proud to contribute to this.
