Oct 18, 2022
Proximus announced today that it has signed a long-term collaboration agreement with Living Tomorrow. Proximus will become a prominent partner of Living Tomorrow’s Innovation Campus 2030, giving visitors and stakeholders in the enterprise market a glimpse of how we will live, work and play in the future. By joining this vibrant ecosystem, Proximus further reinforces its pivotal role in Belgium’s digital society, driving innovation in close collaboration with a wide variety of partners.
The agreement was signed last Friday, during a visit of the Living Tomorrow premises by a Proximus delegation consisting of Guillaume Boutin (CEO), Anne-Sophie Lotgering (Enterprise Market Lead) and Stefaan De Clerck (Chairman of the Board). Living Tomorrow was represented by Yin Oei (CEO), Joachim De Vos and Frank Beliën (Managing Partners) and former President of the European Council Herman Van Rompuy (Chairman Advisory Board).
The Living Tomorrow project involves the realization of a new Innovation Campus in Vilvoorde, which will be equipped with Proximus Connectivity and IT services. Furthermore, Proximus will get the opportunity to actively demonstrate its products and services in fixed and mobile connectivity, security and cloud. The campus will be a unique platform to share visions, explore synergies with participants from different industries and work on innovative and smart solutions in various fields, especially serving the entire stakeholder network in the Enterprise segment.
The innovation campus will become the largest technological showcase center in Europe. Main innovation themes include: Smart Communication, Data & Connectivity Services, Smart Home & Future of Work, Smart Buildings & Infrastructure, Smart Manufacturing, Smart Cities, Smart Logistics & Mobility as well as Smart Health, Food & Agriculture.
The similarities with Proximus’ strategic priorities are remarkable. The innovations that will be developed and demonstrated at Living Tomorrow all rely upon robust, secure and future-proof networks, ranging from Fiber and 5G to IoT and quantum internet technologies. The Living Tomorrow project emerges from a fundamental belief in the power of digital technology to develop innovative applications and face important societal challenges. Moreover, Proximus’ participation in Living Tomorrow is an illustration of its willingness to actively engage in partnerships and ecosystems to face these challenges. And last but not least, the project will put emphasis on the development of sustainable digital solutions. It will promote visions around the transformation to a circular economy and investigate ways to accelerate the journey towards net zero carbon emissions, reflecting Proximus’ strong commitment for a green and digital society.
