Using smart technologies to do 'more for less' - in conjunction with ADEPT @ London, TBC

Following extensive stakeholder engagement, EIC has established great interest in using smart technology to do ‘more for less’ – helping cities to meet their environmental and sustainability obligations more efficiently and, by extension, more cost effectively.

This event will bring together those with budgetary responsibility at city level with the necessary senior industry stakeholders to shape a policy, technological and financial understanding of how this concept can be delivered in practice – drawing on expertise from across the UK and internationally.

Agenda will be finalised shortly, but topics for discussion to include:

  • Why smart sustainability? Making the business case
  • Using smart tech to generate income at city level
  • Devolution and city autonomy’s ability to deliver cost-effective change
  • ‘Beyond cities’ – applying these principles outside the city context (eg in smaller towns and rural communities, where the challenges will be different)
  • Engaging the citizen, increased spend?
  • Case study presentations across the full spectrum of environmental challenges

This event is being organised in conjunction with with the Association of Directors of Environment, Economy, Planning & Transport (ADEPT).
