Mission

Creating value from science and technology to increase the liveability of cities: sustainable, resilient and smart. There are many new and innovative concepts (e.g. mainstreaming, resilience, adaptation), solutions (e.g. green infrastructure, big data, building with nature), and approaches (e.g. social innovation, experimentation, co-creation, participatory process, system & risk approach, multiple benefits). But these are often not delivered or implemented due to barriers in governance, funding and technical lock-in. They are not eveidence-based and there are no integrated approach, business cases and revenue models.

Bax & Willems helps to exploit a new wave of urban dynamics, investments in infrastructures, use of big and open data, and public support for sustainable, resilient and smart cities. Bax & Willems facilitates open innovation, co-creation and accelerates learning to do more with less, for better public service delivery, implementation of new innovations, generation and development of business. Bax & Willems connects governments with business, research and citizens; innovators with users and enablers, to deliver better projects, faster.
