Schreder USA and University of Georgia Sign Agreement Continuing Collaboration in Smart Campus Research

Schréder and the University of Georgia sign official partnership during the course of the Belgian Economic Mission to the United-States.

Last week Schréder USA participated in what was the largest economic mission to the state of Georgia since the 1996 Olympics. The Belgian economic mission, grouping over 300 delegates, was led by Her Royal Highness Princess Astrid. On behalf of Schréder, Nicolas Keutgen, Steve Mills and John Camp participated in the mission events in both Georgia and New York City. In Atlanta, during a signing ceremony at the University of Georgia Athens. During this event, Andrew Potter, head of the University’s Innovation Hub and Steve Mills, Regional Manager at Schréder in North America, signed an agreement solidifying their ongoing partnership.

Schréder engaged with the University of Georgia’s Innovation Hub last semester to perform an in-depth analysis of the campus and its key stakeholders in how they would interact with a Smart Campus. Throughout the project the students delivered a final report of their findings and a presentation to showcase their findings and open a discussion on the themes that emerged in their research.

We were honored to participate in the Economic Mission, having our company roots in Belgium, and were excited to see the strong collaborations and ties between Belgium and the United-States grow further.

We are looking forward to the future of this partnership and the work we will complete together to better understand the needs of smart campus users!
