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

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

During a two-month period at Eötvös Elementary school, Artemisia Landscape Design worked intensively with about 150 students and 10 teachers and administrators at the school to develop a concept for an edible school landscape.

Urban markets, that once flourished has not adjusted well to the changing needs of citizens.
