Wavre, soon to be a true smart city of Europe

Flexible and reliable connectivity lies at the foot of every successful city and organization. Thanks to CONNECTOW, creating a fifth gen communications network, we are helping to further develop Wavre into an even more innovative, energy efficient and greener city. With the inhabitants in the first place. Now that's smart!

CONNECTOW gives the city of Wavre the opportunity to provide affordable, and in some places even free, connectivity for the needy, schools, entrepreneurs, aid and government services. This puts the city of Wavre on the international map as a truly smart city.


The dreams of the children

With curiosity, we encouraged the youth of Wavre to share their dreams and hopes for how they imagine the future of their town. With the help of Dubois Vincent, these dreams are drawn out.
