FUTURE CITIES CATAPULT JOINS CITY LEADERS IN SMART CONVERSATIONS
Led by the Smart City Commission, we are working with a diverse range of city partners like Innovation Birmingham Ltd, Aston University, WM Police, Canals and River Trust and Social Breakfast to develop and support a programme of smart city integrated projects in East Birmingham.
The smart city demonstrator aims to build on existing investments and programmes of work such as Birmingham Cycle Revolution, Birmingham Connected and Active Parks and contribute to the ambition of the East Birmingham Prospectus for Growth by applying new and integrated ways of using technology, data, infrastructure and city assets to tackle city challenges.
In doing so it aims to accelerate how we can support people and businesses to be more economically active; create the conditions to support better health and wellbeing and build the evidence base that will shape more effective interventions and investments in services as part of the Birmingham ‘Future Council’ programme.
At a recent workshop with city leaders we started to identify the first round of project ideas to take forward, which will now be developed further by working with community groups, citizens and businesses on the ground and provide a starting point for the next edition of the Roadmap.
