THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This timely seminar will bring out latest thinking on next steps for supporting the development and application of smart technologies in cities across the UK.
Delegates will discuss key issues including how cities might more effectively articulate their needs to the supply chain and attract innovators in order to address local challenges for driving economic growth and social benefits.
Taking place in light of the Government’s recently launched call for evidence into the UK’s geospatial sector - looking at how geospatial data can be used to transform public services and support the UK’s productivity - attendees will examine key issues around the delivery and support for urban services, including attracting and focusing investment, data management and analysis, and connectivity and infrastructure.
They will also consider what lessons can be learnt from existing smart cities around collaboration, funding, and citizen and stakeholder engagement.
Further sessions will examine priorities for the creation and adoption of standards to enable the roll-out of smart cities across the UK, focusing on interoperability and system integration, sustainability and best practice.
The agenda also looks at what is needed in policy development, regulation and leadership, as well as next steps for positioning the UK at the forefront of intelligent innovation
