More than half the world’s population live in cities and urbanisation is advancing rapidly. Smart technology and digital abundance have the potential to revolutionise the way cities operate. Successful cities provide opportunity and amenity – from which stem innovation and entrepreneurship, jobs and economic vitality, learning, recreation, social care, artistic creativity and cultural richness. These benefits are enabled by social and physical infrastructure systems that are closely integrated and mutually reinforcing – a joined-up system of systems. At CWIC we explore the key drivers behind establishing this industry and the methods we can adopt to optimise for success.
