Smart city, smart grids, sustainable cities, energy transition, resilience, open data and more. Which are the hot topics? What is going on in the world of city development? What’s a good match for your city? Let’s check it out.
When analysing a city (e.g. for Strategic city profiling) we look at :
Geographic and spatial characteristics
The socio-cultural context
The political orientation and city marketing issues
The presence of companies and the local economy in general
The historic development of the city
For international knowledge exchange and cooperations, we provide :
Linguistic understanding and technical translations
Analysis and explanation of structural and infrastructural differences
Adaptation of concepts
Helping to identify partners and setting up consortia
Knowledge of EU and international organisations and funding programs
Public services, companies, research and civil society have to cooperate more and more often. We help you to bring the different interests and working cultures together:
Explanation of working differences
Detection of matching partners and definition of pragmatic communication procedures
Detection of compatible interests
Development of common working programs as well as communication contents
Innovation, funding and cooperation for city projects and programs can’t afford improvisation. We are offering our experience:
Definition of objectives
Detection of funding opportunities and fair assessment of success probabilities
For EU-Funding, eventual further cooperation with established and successful application specialists from our network
Project coordination and monitoring
We don’t know everything. But we know how to find the missing parts:
Cooperation with trustworthy partners
Long experience and connection to the European knowledge exchange
Participation in research projects
Interdisciplinary understanding of urban topics
Connection to local projects in the Upper Rhine (France, Germany) and Poland
We design matching offers, taking into account:
Your team and resources
Your local context
The time factor
Your project as a whole
Cities are in a constant state of change. We stay up-to-date:
Independently-led city research and trend scouting
Preparation of professional development training
Production of studies and benchmarks
Assessing the meaning of labels, trendy terms and their implications (“smart, data, green, eco-districts” etc.)
We know that consultancy is subject to criticism. Each of our clients receives our full attention and the following issues particularly matter to us:
Supporting projects which make sense for people, cities and the environment
Address the goals of sustainability, resilience and protection of the environment
Actively promote social integration
No use of prefabricated concepts
Client fairness: we try to formulate reasonable offers
Get your team “on board” and show respect without trying to replace them
We offer the usual rates of the consulting branch.
We think that consulting should always be worth it to you. Negotiation sets the tone – we don’t strive to be the cheapest; we strive for excellency. Before getting started, we will always consider and weigh your needs and suggest different options. We’ll find a matching format for all our clients without downscaling the quality of our work.
