What makes a 'good' Digital Board? Opportunity for Members

Applications to join the Working Group for techUK's cross-programme project to unpack what makes a 'good' Digital Board are open!

A significant aspect of techUK’s Smart City work for 2018 is focused on the practical steps to deliver smart city solutions at the local level. Key to this will be driving demand side maturity for adopting smart city applications and solutions, supporting local authorities to build capacity as the implementers of these initiatives across the UK.

The Smart Cities & Communities work stream of the SmarterUK programme, in conjunction with the Local Government programme is undertaking a project to outline what makes a ‘good’ Digital Board – specifically regarding the suggested make-up and terms. The output of this project will be a practical and action-oriented paper.

techUK members will have an opportunity to join the Working Group - the primary provider of information for the report which will be written by techUK. If this opportunity is of interest to you, please send a short expression of interest including your name, role title and interest or relation to the project to Jessica Russell. We will send out confirmation of the Working Group shortly after.

The Workshop will take place at techUK on Tuesday 08 May, from 10am-12pm.

The report will be validated by an Advisory Group, made up of stakeholders from local authorities around the UK, and will be launched in May.
