Smart Cities Consulting GmbH is a privately held SME based in Vienna, Austria.
We believe that every city and community has to develop their individual strategy of "being smart" and to develop measures for it. Valuable insight and inspiration will be provided by projects conducted by other communities with comparable preconditions acting as "role models" or "best practice" for specific fields of action. We strive to connect communities and their numerous stakeholders and stimulate cooperation. (Especially for small communities with limited resources and knowledge base cooperation is a "means of choice" for achieving results that can be future proof.) An essential ingredient for "smart communities" is local economy and value creation. We want to help to establish and support local business und innovation hubs and interconnect them as well on international level.
SCC is dedicated to cooperation itself and organized as a network of autonomous small corporates and individuals (experts in their respective lines of work). The advantage is to be able to offer skilled forces for a variety of tasks and provide partners with business services as well as dissemination and public communication.
