The Digital Leaders Cities programme allows our community in each of the 10 UK partner cities to debate, support and take action together to build the digital confidence of their smart city.

Cities as Smart Places can use data and technology to create efficiencies, improve sustainability, create economic development, and enhance quality of life factors for people living and working in them. They are the areas best able to take advantage of new technologies such as IoT, Data analytics and 5G connectivity.

Our Digital Leaders community in each City are leaders from business, government, education, social care, health, non-profit and academic sectors. This gives them a great opportunity to help others deliver a smart city and for themselves to explore the opportunities for businesses and government to be at the forefront of developing innovative products and services to meet their changing city’s needs.
