In line with its commitment to combine technology and nature in its New Town Development projects, LandWey along with the world-renowned university, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, MIT and the Lagos State Government, is set to launch the Senseable Lagos Lab in Isimi Lagos.

With over 121 awards and 33,216 citations associated with the lab, its launch in Lagos is set to produce discoveries that will help to achieve national sustainable development.

Commenting on the prospects of the Senseable Lagos Lab, Olawale Ayilara, CEO Oxygen Holdings, parent company of LandWey remarked, “We have always placed technology and innovation at the core of all our developments, it is therefore no surprise that we are proud to announce the launch of the Senseable Lagos Lab to be located within the Isimi Lagos Tech Valley. We are hoping that this partnership will give rise to innovations and breakthroughs to propel Lagos and Africa at large to the forefront of the global technology movement as we work towards our sustainability goals.”

MITs Senseable City Lab is affiliated with other world-renowned academic institutions such as the University of Tokyo, Weizmann Institute of Science, Universidad Autónoma de Occidente, Instituto Politecnico Nacional, Imperial College London, Università di Pisa, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, AMS Institute.

The research initiative is as fluent with industry partners as it is with metropolitan governments, individual citizens, and disadvantaged communities.
