BVV Trade Fairs Brno plans to create a Smart City Living Lab, also known as a 'Living Lab', within its premises. The Living Lab will feature an outdoor Archimedes Education Centre, which will serve as a permanent exhibit to highlight modern technologies and innovative concepts/solutions. Unlike traditional school classrooms, it will not be used for regular lessons.

Archimedes will primarily function as an outdoor education centre, offering visitors practical demonstrations and inspiration in Smart City technologies. This multi-functional space will exhibit the latest technological advancements that contribute to smart and sustainable urban living. Additionally, the centre will serve as a multifunctional space for seminars, workshops, and other activities.

The Archimedes Outdoor Education Centre comprises:
  • Presentations and demonstrations of modern technological solutions for municipalities, cities, and regions in the field of Smart City, including applications for energy, transport, security, and more.
  • Educational and training activities: cooperation with partner organisations will enable the holding of educational and training events using 5G networks and other innovative technologies.
  • Demonstrations of third-party applications: the possibility to present and implement applications from external developers and companies, which encourages innovation and development of innovative solutions.
  • Meet up: the Archimedes Outdoor Education Centre will serve as a central hub for visitors to the Smart City Living Lab, where interested municipalities, students, companies and citizens can meet, discuss and share their experiences and ideas, leading to synergistic effects.

Overall, the Archimedes Outdoor Education Centre will not only be an attractive feature for visitors to the Brno trade fairs, but also a dynamic environment for testing and presenting new technological trends in the field of Smart City with the aim of improving the quality of life in municipalities and cities in the Czech Republic.
