Smart City Consultancy

We assist potential clients like local and central governments, international organisations and companies on how cities can become smarter with application of novel techologies. The actual scope of consultancy is defined based on the specific needs and requirements of a potential client. For example, we are advising UNDP in a joint partnership with Arup and Climate KIC on how to set up an Urban Learning Centre as a digital learning platform in the European Eastern Partnership cities. In addition, we are looking forward to consult potential clients in the domain of technologies and roadmaps of our smart city pilots.

FinEst Centre for Smart Cities has the following experiences and know-how based on pilots with cities:
