What We Do

Smart city thinking challenges the status quo of managing cities. It requires political courage and a holistic approach to public management to create efficiencies and sustainable growth. This can be achieved by involving businesses, knowledge institutions and citizens more deeply in creating smart urban solutions.

Copenhagen, like many other large cities, suffers from massive problems with congestion and flash floods; this and the ambitious climate targets are reasons for the need to rethink how the city’s solutions are structured in new smart ways, such as the utilization of big data and new technologies.

The Copenhagen Solutions Lab will be a new governing body for smart city projects across all sectors in the city and will have focus on creating triple helix partnerships. Copenhagen Solutions Lab will lead the implementation of innovation and smart city development in close collaboration with knowledge institutions and companies as well as citizens. New ITS solutions, reduced carbon emissions, implementation of sensors that create real time data and information on current situations in the city and the build up and architecture of a new ‘Big Data Digital Infrastructure Platform’ that shares data across public and private sectors will all be working focus points within the Lab.
