What is 'Smart City Budapest' Initiative?

Smart City Budapest (SCB) Initiative collects mostly grassroots projects and organisations from Budapest which are connected to the smart city concept. SCB Initiative aims to introduce best practices from businesses, institutions, non-profit organisations and the people of Budapest. With knowledge transfer our goal is to encourage citizens to take actions for a better city. A city is smart when investments in capital and communication infrastructure fuel sustainable economic growth and a high quality of life, in combination with an efficient use of natural resources. But a smart city doesn't exist without smart citizens.

Projects highlight

It is a year-round educational program on social entrepreneurship dedicated to students and it is hosted by Impact HUB Budapest in Hungary.

For a night in May, vocal music fills not only the concert halls, but the streets, squares and hidden corners of 8th district in Budapest.

The „100 words about Budapest” is the first practical project, which was consciously geared to Smart City Budapest by Mindspace.

Our news

The former BRFK photo gallery was reborn as a local experimental club called Rákócity. The first program included jungle vibes, calmness and lots of green.  

Last year, the first Mindspace voluntary meeting was held, which proved to be popular. That's why it took place again, this year on February 4th, in the big hall of Lumen Cafe. The Mindspace team has been surprised, as more than 60 people have appeared and many have joined as a volunteer. 

Old Market Hall of Bratislava

While the weather was still sunny in October, our intern team consisting of five people went on a day trip to Bratislava, Slovakia to meet The Old Market Hall Alliance team and explore The Old Market Hall of Bratislava (Stara Tržnica).
