Through years of collaboration, we have established the necessary knowledge and expertise to match other global regions and have created an ecosystem where we learn from each other very quickly. This is now becoming even more operational," says Martin Brynskov, CitCom.ai lead and coordinator, and Head of DTU Connecting Communities Centre.
