Peterborough is at the Taipei Smart City Summit & Expo 2018

Posted: 26/03/2018

As one of the UK’s top Smart Cities, we’re delighted to be part of the UK government’s stand at the 2018 Smart City Summit and Expo in Taipei this week (27 – 30 March  2018).

We’re also pleased for our city’s smart journey to be featured at the Power up for Cities talk and Go Smart Workshop at the Expo (times and dates above) .

Peterborough is among the UK’s top 5 fastest growing cities and we’re a hotbed of digital creativity thanks to fantastic gigabit connectivity, and being just a 50 minute train ride from London. On top of that our Smart City Leadership Programme and Circular Economy initiatives are boosting the city’s resilience and enhancing resource efficiency whilst also expanding the city’s international reputation.

Peterborough’s impact:

  • 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
  • Attends the All Party Parliamentary Group on Smart Cities
  • A member of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s Circular Cities Network
  • Delivers a DFID-funded Smart City Leadership Programme for the Indian city of Amaravati and for the state of Madhya Pradesh
