Muntstroom PCP is the first European PCP on people flow data & analytics. The PCP is a first step of an innovation procurement programme to enhance the attractiveness of the Brussels Capital Region for pedestrians and the use of the data on pedestrian flows. Register now for the Webinars on 19 November!


Project Objective

The Muntstroom project is initiated by 4 public buyers: STIB-MIVB (lead), CIRB-CIBG, Brussels Mobility and Parking.Brussels. This Muntstroom PCP group would like to be the launching customer for an integrated end-to-end solution for the outdoor and indoor monitoring of people flow. However, research showed that the desired integrated solution, and specific elements thereof, do not yet exist. Hence, via the Muntstroom PCP, they would like to develop and test the monitoring system themselves. This together with the private sector and in collaboration with the end users.

After a successful completion of the Muntstroom PCP, the public buyers intend to initiate a follow-up PPI, based upon the lessons learned from the Muntstroom PCP.

Budget

The foreseen total budget for co-financing the R&D in this of the PCP is maximum € 500.000. This budget does not include the public procurement of the to be developed solution (PPI), as a result of this PCP.

Two Market Consultations 

The Muntstroom PCP is currently in phase 0. See Figure above. It started with an extensive preparation by the public buyers. Subsequently two market consultation have been prepared:

  • an Open Market Consultation (OMC) to give technology suppliers the possibility to provide feedback
  • an Open Client Dialogue (OCD) to give potential end-users of people flow data the possibility to provide feedback.

    More information and downloads can be found on the Muntstroom website. 

Open Market consultation

The public buyers behind the Muntstroom PCP want to develop and test end-to-end solutions for monitoring multi-faceted people flow. They would like to do this together with the private sector and in collaboration with the end-users. The procurement of the needed R&D will be shaped via a so-called Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP)- approach. This approach has different advantages for technology suppliers:

  • Speed up their own foreseen technology developments, by mapping and finetuning these with the customers’ needs and expectations.
  • Lower their investment R&D costs, as a result of the co-financing by the Public Buyers (a total co-financing budget of € 500k is foreseen)
  • Allow the sharing of risks and benefits with the public buyers.
  • Refer to the participation in the Muntstroom PCP as a reference site for other (innovation) procurement projects in Belgium and other Member States of the EU.

Via the Open Market Consultation private parties that are interested in the pre-commercial tender get the unique opportunity to give feedback on the requirements. The public buyers have different questions. Are the initial ideas and the proposed planning feasible (or not)? How much co-financing does the company think it will need and what for? Does it need matchmaking? Etc.

The Open Market Consultation is widely targeting companies that could provide (elements of) the desired integrated end-to-end solution. This regardless of the sector that companies are working in (ICT, software, hardware, analytics, security, …) and regardless how companies would like to be engaged in this PCP-tender procedure (consortium, sole contractor, …).

More information on how to give feedback or to ask question, can be found on the Muntstroom website. 

Open Client Dialogue

The public buyers behind the Muntstroom PCP want to develop and test end-to-end solutions for monitoring multi-faceted people flow. This together with the private sector and in collaboration with the end users of the to be produced people flow data. The procurement of the needed R&D will be shaped via a so-called pre-commercial procurement (PCP)- approach. 

This approach has different advantages for the end-users:

  • Deepen their knowledge about the premium and innovative People flow data,
  • Optimise and enhance the current product/services on the basis of this data.
  • Explore new algorithms and applications that will take the most out of this new data.
  • Generate new revenues and create new products.
  • Reach out to new customers

Via the Open Client Dialogue interested parties get the unique opportunity to give feedback on the requirements of the pre-commercial tender. What kind of data would they be interested in, in which formats and under which conditions? Do they have suggestions for the use cases?

Additional interested parties can indicate if they would like to be involved in the PCP-process. For example by testing the Open Data during the living lab phase or by participating in People Flow-related workshops.

The Open Client Dialogue is widely targeting companies that would like to use the People Flow-data to develop new apps/services for commercial purposes. This regardless of the sector that they are working in: mobility, asset management, security, location / commercial attractiveness, tourism, etc.

More information on how to give feedback or to ask question, can be found on the Muntstroom website.
