Smart Cities, Smart Opportunities

I met with Joe Dignan last week and shot this short video interview (see below) outside the Palace of Westminster.

Joe is currently working with Future Cities Catapult. The catapult’s work focuses on three core themes: “promoting healthy cities, building resilience in urban infrastructure, and designing strategies to help cities adopt and finance smarter technologies.”

Joe outlines how the UK’s growing expertise in creating smart city infrastructure now represents a major export opportunity.

He also outlines how some UK cities, such as Bristol, are building highly innovative smart city platforms upon which SMEs can use their imaginations to create new and exciting city services.
