Welcome to the AI4Cities Bootcamp!

  • Want to reach six big European cities as possible customers? 
  • Want to grow your understanding of the public procurement application process and learn the best tricks?
  • Want to get sparring and feedback about your solution before the actual procurement?
  • Want to write your best public procurement application ever?

AI4Cities project is organising together with Industryhack Get ready: AI4Cities Bootcamp. This coaching bootcamp is directed to all interested startups, SMEs and bigger companies who are both able to design innovative solutions applying the use of AI to and motivated to participate in the pre-commercial procurement (PCP) process. In PCP, public procurers purchase R&D from several suppliers in parallel to compare alternative solutions and approaches in order to identify solutions with greatest effectiveness.

AI4Cities is a three-year EU-funded project bringing together leading European cities looking for pre-commercial artificial intelligence (AI) solutions to accelerate their endeavour to reach carbon neutrality. Helsinki, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Paris region, Stavanger  and Tallinn are the six European cities and regions that want to ask companies to provide with AI solutions for different mobility and energy challenges, that will ultimately contribute to reduce CO2 emissions and meet their climate commitments. The total funding amount to be divided among the selected suppliers throughout the whole PCP process is 4.6 million euros.

The Get ready: AI4Cities Bootcamp will be organised as the first step or phase 0 of the PCP process to coach motivated participants to write their best applications yet for upcoming tender. Aim of the bootcamp is to coach and spar participating teams about their preliminary solution ideas and application process. During Phase 0 feedback for the tender qualifications will be collected, so participants will have unique opportunity to impact on the contents of the following tender.

Provide your AI solution for mobility and energy challenges

Six European cities and regions are looking for companies to provide AI solutions for mobility and energy challenges. Main goal for these solutions is that they will ultimately contribute to reduce CO2 emissions and help the cities and regions to meet their climate commitments. The proposed solutions must involve real AI that provides added value for the solution. In phase 3, the solutions will be piloted in at least two cities.

The cities and regions have already identified some general challenges they are looking to solve with the help of proposed solutions, but now are interested in to hear your ideas.
