FT-Siemens Future Cities Briefing London

The next generation of urban evolution

London |

Overview

As the digital epicentre and hub for technological and cultural development in the UK, London is on a journey to achieving the mayor’s ambition of becoming the smartest city in the world. With a growing population, estimated to reach 10 million by 2030, the city’s keystone for success is a shared vision and comprehensive growth strategy that embraces digital inclusion, open data and connectivity. 

Tapping into the unrealised potential of digital cities, efforts are being focused on addressing London’s complex challenges around pollution, air quality and transportation by creating innovative and collaborative user-designed services. How can smart technology improve the lives of London citizens and aid the development of new sustainable processes? What creative policies can be adopted to encourage stakeholders and organisations across the public, private and third sectors to participate? 

The next generation of urban evolution will bring together policy-makers, innovators and investors for an exclusive gathering and discussion on how best to solve London’s toughest urban challenges. Organised by the Financial Times, in partnership with Siemens, this high-level morning briefing will focus on developing a city-wide digital transformation and the forward-thinking strategies needed to transform London into an agile, smart and sustainable destination.
