Transforming City Services through best Practice

Future Cities Catapult is partnering 'Transforming City Services through Best Practice' an event organised by BSI and Digital Greenwich. The event is for local authorities and public sector bodies only


The workshop will bring together different local authorities from across the UK to discuss common challenges and to share ideas about how existing best practice can be scaled.

It will focus on the areas of planning, health, mobility and accessibility, with speakers from local authorities such as Greenwich, Cambridge and Hackney introducing the key challenges they face.

In the afternoon we will run a series of round-tables to discuss these challenges in more detail and consider ways forward. Our intention is then to establish communities of practice around these challenges areas – which we will invite the private sector into later on – in order to meet regularly to define potential standards and collaborate on proof of concepts and funding bids.
