Innovation especially takes where different disciplines interact. Working in a range of high impact focus areas, Bax & Company is especially well positioned to help clients identify and develop such cross-sector innovation opportunities.
Advanced materials and Design-driven Innovation
Novel materials continue to drive innovation in all product categories. Bax & Company is expert in developing R&D strategies, programme development, research to market of advanced materials, including but not limited to high-performance metals, lightweight composites and multifunctional smart materials. We combine deep knowledge on advanced materials with novel insights on using Design Driven Innovation methods as a means to translate new materials and their processing / manufacturing technologies into new and meaningful products / services.
Energy-efficiency of urban systems
Bax & Company works with cities, building owners, real estate and construction industry actors to develop energy efficiency interventions in large portfolios or real estate. Our added value ranges from introducing novel technology solutions, to creating financial policies that promote, facilitate and scale-up the implementation by institutional as well as private actors.
Digitalisation is changing the face of European society and industry, resolving challenges and creating new synergies and opportunities. We leverage our expert knowledge of the key drivers of change in industry (Smart Manufacturing, Industry 4.0, Internet of Things, and 3D printing) to help our clients to lead change rather than be overtaken by it.
Climate adaptation, infrastructure and urbanism
Bax & Company assists cities and regions to overcome the governance, financial and technical barriers of implementing innovative approaches to climate change resilience. We are experts in turning complex urban challenges with multiple stakeholders into feasible and bankable investment and implementation programmes for infrastructure and urban development. Our work is rooted in facilitating and accelerating learning between cities, business, NGOs, academia, and government.

Electric vehicles and future mobility
Bax & Company has a strong track record working with Europe’s leading car makers on organizing their R&D towards providing truly sustainable mobility, especially involving vehicle lightweighting and electricification. Recently we are connecting this long standing industry practice with our extensive network in innovative cities and regions, to help leverage innovation in electric and autonomous vehicles towards deployment in sustainable mobility solutions.
Smart Cities and Open Data
Cities seek to leverage new Open Data and ICT-based solutions to improve the efficiency and quality of public service delivery, stimulate sustainable economic development, and achieve a greater quality of life for citizens. Bax & Company helps cities bring together technology (e.g. sensors), tools (e.g. data), and processes (e.g. market engagement) to develop and execute cross-sector Smart Cities strategies.
