Logo Smartport

SmartPort is a collaborative agreement between the Port of Rotterdam authority, the industry representation Deltalinqs, the Rotterdam municipality, and the Delft and Erasmus universities.

It continued in a new format since April 2015, with general director Michiel Jak, and it has developed five roadmaps in which universities collaborate with industry and government. Two of the Centre for Metropolis and Mainport themes, namely Synchromodality and World Port City, are closely connected to two corresponding SmartPort roadmaps.

There are also local academic communities at Erasmus and Delft universities, that are connected with SmartPort and the Centre for Metropolis & Mainport.
