An opportunity to team up with the UK government and join a smart cities trade mission to China has opened up for British ITS businesses this summer.
Innovate UK, the Department of International Trade, the Future Cities Catapult, the China-British Business Council and 100%Open have announced an entrepreneur mission to the Greater Bay Area – a cluster of 11 cities across the Guangdong – Hong Kong – Macau region.
UK companies operating in intelligent transport and mobility, as well as a host of other key urban sectors such as spatial planning and design, open data, sustainable development and regeneration and pollution and remediation, are in with a chance of joining the mission.
100%Open is looking to engage with UK companies who can offer solutions in the following areas:
- Smart mobility, including CO2 emissions, efficiency in transport systems, multi-modal transport and connectivity, and the user experience
- Affordable healthcare for an ageing population, using big data to offer patient-centred solutions, integrate healthcare platforms and deliver high-performance computing services and cloud platforms for health management
- Sustainable urban environments, using smart platforms to monitor and forecast industrial and domestic pollution, energy efficiency and optimisation, brownfield management and urban waste
- Urban planning and technology infrastructure including IoT, systems integration, data analytics and smart grid
Up to 15 UK companies have the chance to benefit from a tailored and supportive mission programme in November, consisting of high-level presentations, discussion sessions, pitching and networking opportunities and site visits. Participants are supported through a readiness workshop and personal coaching.
