The Municipality of Dordrecht is emphasizing this concept by launching the “Smart City Dordrecht” program. Through the innovation fund, the city supports companies, citizens and educational establishments with projects of up to two years that add to the livability of the city. Companies that are implementing their projects at the moment are Ranmarine, Compaan, ShareYourMeal and others. 

The city will seek to apply technology and other solutions to meet its main challenges. Dordrecht is now applying sensors to measure air quality and noise, initially in an industrial part of the city, with the first ones installed a couple of weeks ago. In the next 15 years there will be the need for 10,000 new dwellings and, in the same timeframe, the number of people over 65 will increase by 45 per cent.
