Posted: 26/03/2019

As one of the UK’s top Smart Cities, we’re delighted to be part of the UK government’s stand at the 2019 Smart City Summit and Expo in Taipei this week (26 – 29 March 2019).

Peterborough is among the UK’s top 5 fastest growing cities and we’re a hotbed of innovation with one of the highest business start-up rates in the country.

Our Future Peterborough team is dedicated to making sure our city works as efficiently as possible for businesses and residents. The Smart City Leadership Programme and Circular Economy initiatives are internationally respected for how they’ve improved Peterborough’s economic resilience and sustainability. We want to share what we’ve learnt with other cities and regions around the world to develop more best practice examples and support more cities on their smart city and circular economy journeys.

Peterborough’s impact:

  • Delivers a DFID-funded Smart City Leadership Programme for the Indian city of Amaravati and for the state of Madhya Pradesh
  • Played a lead role in the development of British Standards Institute’s (BSI) suite of Smart City Standards
  • Chair of the BSI’s Smart and Sustainable Cities Committee (SDS/2)
  • A founder member of the Cities Standards Institute
