Vision and approach to innovation capacity
Along with 50% of cities surveyed, Bratislava does not have an explicit innovation strategy. Similar to more than half of cities surveyed, Bratislava approaches innovation capacity both from a holistic/macro level, as well as in specific policy areas.
Policy areas that Bratislava is focused on
Transport/mobility: Bratislava recently passes a new parking policy to rein in the ever-growing number of cars in the city. On one hand, the city wants to offer modern, attractive, safe, inclusive and climate-resilient public space in the city center and other city districts. On the other hand, Bratislava wants to motivate more people to commute using public transport and on foot, whenever possible. The first step is gathering data and trying to understanding people's movement and flow in/out and within the city. Secondly, Bratislava also wants to provide better information about mobility options through their pilot mobility app.
