Why

What is BABLE

BABLE is a community driving the Smart City movement. Our members come from cities and companies striving towards creating smarter cities. We use this platform to share our experiences and ideas while helping each other develop new ones. Our platform is a spin-off from the Fraunhofer Society. We work with researchers and experts in the Smart City field to bring together neutral and quality information to support implementation of Smart City Solutions.

What is in EXPLORE?

The explore section of BABLE is like a library which helps you gain in depth understanding of Smart City Solutions, learn from the experiences of others and discover the current trends and products in the market.
Here you will find:

  • Expert curated information needed to understand and implement Smart City Solutions.
  • Use Cases explaining the experiences of other cities and companies who have implemented Smart City Solutions
  • Innovative products designed for cities, which can be integrated to tackle a variety of urban challenges.

Additionally, when you are logged in, we have the MY BABLE Section through which you can edit your personal profile, company/city profile, and share Use Cases, posts and products.

Why visit SPOT section?

The SPOT section helps you to connect with and stay up dated with the needs and offers of the Smart City community.
By frequently visiting the section, you can:

  • Stay-up-to date with tenders focussed in the Smart Cities area
  • Read about the needs and offers of the other community members on the POSTs page
  • React to calls for collaboration.
