Bax & Company (Project Management)

Profile:

Bax & Company is a leading European innovation consultancy. They help corporate directors, entrepreneurs and policy makers to create, execute and manage cutting-edge science & technology enabled initiatives that deliver substantial societal, environmental and economic impact.

Bax & Company’s Data & Smart Cities cluster help cities use data and technologies to address daily challenges in a way that is needed – driven, open, scalable and financially sustainable. We help cities to improve public services through stakeholder engagement, engage the private sector to stimulate the city’s economy and innovation capacity, mobilise resources to enable cities to achieve their goals and develop and execute ambitious Smart City strategies.

Expertise:

Bax & Company initiated and manage SCIFI. They developed the project in order to support mid-sized governments engage with the market and develop innovative data-driven solutions. They are experienced with innovative and cross-border public procurement: i.e., helping cities define their needs, communicating these to market, and running accelerator processes to stimulate collaboration between government and solution providers.

Bax & Company support similar projects, such as SCORE, in which cities collaborate to develop open-source open data solutions inhouse – increasing the scalability, efficiency and quality of public service delivery.

Role in the Project:

Bax & Company’s City2City learning experts and experienced project managers have brought together transnational consortia that inspire each other to create real-world impact.

They are responsible for bringing together policy makers and technical partners, acting as a translator, to ensure both parties know what is feasible and needed from cities.

Bax & Company strive for project results that are scalable and replicable for other cities and will contribute to the sustainability of the accelerator and network after the project ends.
