Local authorities want to leverage data and digitalisation to make cities smarter and a better place to live for citizens. (Better) use of data and digital solutions offer cities effective ways to improve the efficiency and quality of public services while solving challenges related to urban unsustainability (air and noise pollution, flood risk etc.). Bax & Company helps cities bring together the technology, tools, processes and citizens to develop and execute cross-sector smart city strategies.
We help develop smarter cities by sharing knowledge, data, and resources.
We turn policy ambitions and objectives into a strategy and action plan to achieve digitalisation and improve public services while making cities smarter and more sustainable. We include all stakeholders with a special focus on citizen involvement.
LAUNCHING OPEN CALLS AND ACCELERATORS
There are several ways challenges and their corresponding data sets can be presented to the market, one being an open call to which solution providers like start-ups can apply. We provide guidance to optimise your open call. From clearly defining the challenge to defining clear expectations with selected startups, this knowledge can prove especially useful since small-and medium-sized cities often lack the resources (manpower, expertise and/or money) to efficiently promote and run an open call.
DEVELOPING INNOVATION FRAMEWORK
We support cities of all sizes on their path to become more sustainable and liveable through the use of innovative solutions/through digitalisation. We help them step-by-step from the identification and share of common urban challenges among our network of European cities and regions to the opening up of dataset and innovative procurement.
REPLICATING OPEN-SOURCE SOLUTIONS
Cities in Europe face many similar urban challenges. By sharing and replicating each other’s solutions, delivering public services can become more efficient and costs can be decreased. We help cities connect, collaborate and scale up solutions, adapting them to the local context.
