The City of London has remained an international trading centre for centuries and is arguably the most successful city in history.
To maintain its status as a world leader in adaptability and innovation, the City of London Corporation (CoL) is developing a Future City Initiative to celebrate its global competition standing and drive economic growth.
The City will embrace new technologies, focussing on smart enablement, resilience and collaborative innovation, to create a city that is competitive, open, interconnected and intelligent. It will feature excellent connectivity using the latest communications technology and transport links, with significant capacity for growth due to its high quality, flexible buildings and infrastructures, with a distinctive character derived from its diverse mix of buildings, uses, streets, spaces and its outstanding heritage and culture.
The City Centre (TCC), in partnership with the City of London Corporation and Brookfield Property Partners, are undertaking a three-part ideas competition, exhibition and a related series of events including panel discussions and hackathons entitles ‘A Smarter City’ to realise this vision.
As part of the ‘A Smarter City’ programme, we are inviting submissions to a new ideas competition to provide a series of innovative solutions to some key problems across the theme of ‘Smart Cities’. The shortlisted entries will form part of an exhibition from 28 April and 16 December 2017.
