We help you tackle urban challenges in our unique BABLE Ecosystem

Smart City implementations have to serve the needs of the city and its citizens and never be a means to itself. Technological advancements in the last decades have opened up several avenues for cities to improve quality of life and reduce the environmental footprint. E-car sharing, public transport apps, smart home systems, smart street lighting and waste bins all bring innumerable benefits to the city – BUT they have to be designed to fit into your existing systems, processes and appeal to the culture and vibe in your city. The BABLE Ecosystem with its partners, and high quality structured information is designed to help you make your city its unique version of a Smart City.

Have a look into our neutral SOLUTIONS curated to fit your needs, such as decreasing CO2-emissions and operational costs or increasing livability. Show your colleagues and decision makers, successful implementations of these solutions in our USE CASE section. In this process, you will also learn about the Smart City PRODUCTS AND SERVICES used in already implemented solutions. All of this for free. If you need help in defining your challenges or with anything else, have a look into our BABLE SERVICES section.

Get inspired by the endless possibilities and find the solution fitting you best

Knowing your challenges and local circumstances better than any service provider does, you can direct your search for solutions yourself on BABLE. The information on best practices (USE CASES) and neutral Smart City SOLUTIONS provided on BABLE are checked individually and curated based on knowledge gained during a decade of Smart City related research in Europe’s biggest applied research institution Fraunhofer and the international Morgenstadt Initiative.
