He further explained, “Smart Ecosystem is a digital platform that is open to the joining of various other innovative applications. The key factor is that the application must be integrated with various other applications in Jababeka Smart Township.” Meanwhile, the understanding of the Open Innovation concept is that applications that fill Smart Ecosystem 4.0 will not only be developed jointly by PresUniv, Fablab, and Jababeka but also involve external parties.
