On 28 April 2022, the European Commission announced the 100 cities participating in the EU Smart Cities Mission, including The Hague, Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Utrecht, Groningen, Eindhoven and Helmond in the Netherlands.
The research group Future Urban Systems develops and valorizes practical knowledge and proven solutions for local authorities and companies through applied research and education. The research group enhances and demonstrates ways to accelerate energy transition, climate adaptation and circular economy in neighbourhoods and urban areas by harnessing the power of data analytics and digital transformation.
Researchers, lecturers and students are the driving force of the research group Future Urban Systems. They work together to realize impacts through inclusive approaches for the adoption of sustainable energy systems for cities, nature-inspired design strategies for resilient cities in climate change, and evidence-based methods for emission-neutral buildings, civil infrastructures and areas in the cities.

Maikel Maloncy obtained his dr. degree at Delft University of Technology in the research area of Membrane Technology, Catalysis and Process Design. While doing his PhD he was employed as a lecturer at The Hague university of Applied Sciences. Currently, he is fulfilling several roles and functions within The Hague University of Applied Sciences. His research topic within the Urban Metabolism Research group is on Improving Waste management in Developing Countries: Case study Accra, Ghana. Improvement in the urban systems is of great importance to enhance living conditions and quality of life, especially in developing nations. As local physical and cultural conditions are important in designing urban systems, this study takes the urban waste management system of Accra, the capital city of Ghana, as a case study for analysing options to improve waste management systems in developing email@example.com
