24 September 18.00 What makes a city ‘smart’, what infrastructure and what technological solutions can and should be deployed to create a truly smart city?
This is a special event run as part of the ISfB (Innovation Support for Business) programme funded by the ERDF (European Regional Development Fund). How we can leverage the strength and depth of tech innovation that happens in Oxford and Oxfordshire, the two universities, the Harwell space cluster and the tech-focused business parks? Oxfordshire already has companies working on developing cutting edge technology for autonomous vehicles, AI, animation, data analytics, cybersecurity, biotech etc. Join us at Modern Art Oxford to: • Hear what Smart Oxford and smart cities are doing in the UK and around the world • Help us identify something unique that Smart Oxford can address – perhaps the extreme social deprivation that exists in some parts of the city? • Find out how to get involved
The panel session, chaired by Tony Hart, newly appointed Head of Smart Oxford, will include: Julie Snell, CEO of Bristol is Open, currently rated the #1 UK smart city Michael Mulquin, President of the Smart Cities Association Linda Chandler, Founder of Hyperlocal Cities Tony will also give a presentation on Smart Oxford, current status and future plans.
