As the ‘mayor’ of the Digital City Marleen Stikker developed the first free entrance to and virtual community on the internet, in 1993. In 1994 she co-founded Waag, a research institute for creative technology and social innovation. Waag focuses on public research in which society is the research field. A good example of research started at Waag is the search for the first fair smartphone, which was further developed by the company Fairphone.
