As part of the ENIGMA project, Eindhoven would like to enhance the experience of its citizens and visitors by including interactivity among the lighting requirements of its new illumination systems. Since the area where they plan to test the ENIGMA innovation includes the PSV stadium and is one of the main arteries into the city's artsy district, the possible applications of light are countless. The city experts working on this topic, as well as residents and other stakeholders, will present their vision of Chimney Alley during the one and a half day study visit.
Moreover, for those interested in creating or developing a light event in their local context, Eindhoven is organising the study visit during their acclaimed GLOW Festival
. The municipal partners of the festival will attend the study visit and discuss with participants the economic and societal implications of such events, the local partners to be involved and the logistical pitfalls to be avoided.
The study visit will be followed by a one and a half day work shadowing visit during which a maximum of 2 representatives from European municipalities will be able to interact with their peers in Eindhoven on public lighting innovation. This is an unique opportunity to gain insight into the inner workings of a pioneer city and to exchange with cross-departmental teams including lighting, procurement, legal and cultural experts.
Participation in this event is only available to municipal employees from European cities and other public authorities.
