The Edinburgh Living Lab, Edinburgh Futures Institute and Data-Driven Innovation programme, would like to invite you to join us for a ‘Smart Places’ themed live panel discussion on Friday 26 June from 3pm to 4pm.
What do we mean by ‘Smart Places’? It’s a broad theme, but one which we believe should emphasise active citizen engagement and participation alongside new uses of data and technology. The aim? To improve places for people. But what might this ‘Smart Places’ approach look like in practice? And how might it address some important place-based challenges to help deliver a brighter future?
The panel discussion is based on the Smart Places series to date, which – through illustrated blog articles and thought pieces from a diverse line up of thinkers, practitioners, experts and leaders in this field – aims to answer some of these questions.
