This is Future Position X
We support development and growth to promote Health and Well-being
for the Citizens of the Smart, Sustainable, Viable City and Community.
Sustainable change can only be achieved in systems where the loadstars are Collaboration, Cooperation, Openness and Generosity.
We are collaborating with the eco-system through our four Platforms;
Research and Academy, Innovation, Incubation and Acceleration.
Future Position X is a Non-profit Network Organization founded in 2006 when regional actors gathered in an initiative, with the mission to take position as a well established Geospatial Information Cluster.
