Future Cities Catapult attending Digital Festival in Cardiff

Sam Markey, Head of Relationship Development, will be speaking on the topic of 'The Journey of a Smart City'.

Details

Future Cities Catapult will be participating at Digital, a festival for innovators, industry and investors taking place in Cardiff across 18-19 September, 2017.

Sam Markey, Head of Relationship Development, will be speaking on Tuesday 19 September in the Engine Room from 15.30 – 16.30 on the topic of ‘The Journey of a Smart City’.

From Cardiff to Krakow, Manchester to Mumbai, our cities face common challenges – including congested roads and transport systems, poor air quality, access to housing, and ageing public infrastructure. The ‘Smart City’ promised to save us from such problems, but in truth has remained little more than a marketing exercise. Instead, civic-minded urban innovators and digital disruptors have risen to the challenge – an urgent insurgence deploying new technologies and innovative approaches to unleash a wave of digitally-enabled advanced urban services.

We hope to see you in Cardiff.
