Schréder SA is the world’s leading independent lighting solution provider. The Walloon group (based in Liege) which is today 48 companies across the globe partners up with the University of Georgia to create a safe, sustainable and smart campus. This partnership has just been signed in Atlanta during the Belgian Economic Mission led by Her Royal Highness Princess Astrid to the United States from 4 to 12 June.
Shréder engaged with the University of Georgia to perform a holistic analysis of the university stakeholders aiming to identify themes, perspectives and trends to inform the definition of campus safety which will contribute ultimately to the construction of an innovative smart campus.
The project team, mainly comprised by UGA students, delivered a data-driven presentation with the project summarization, a case-study emphasizing the key and emerging trends focused on lighting, cameras, transportation and security, and a recommendation of a smart-campus prototype.
This partnership is enabling the creation of a new benchmark for universities striving to innovate their campuses with technology that allows for a safer, more sustainable academic environment.
Founded in 1907, this family business has evolved throughout the years, evolving with the times and continuously adapting to new markets and developing new technologies, all the while maintaining its core values of proximity to the client, innovation and creativity and respect of our environment. Schréder is today bringing together over 2500 women and men passionate about lighting and innovation.
