London: The Data City, Data Driving Innovation
To meet these challenges, London must make the most of new technologies and ensure new forms of collaboration between Londoners, government, businesses and academia.
London is already a leader in ‘smart’ technology. The London Datastore, for example, (an open data platform) receives over 25,000 visits a month and over 450 transport apps alone have been created from it.
We'll be showcasing London's talent in this sector by taking 9 cohort members, representing the sub-sectors of Mobility, Society and Energy and Environment, to the Smart City Expo in Barcelona this November.
