The concept of Smart Cities is championed by tech giants and marketing agencies worldwide, while Civic Tech often relies on local social impact objectives, volunteers, and grants. Yet there is crossover between the two, and thus possibly untapped opportunities for Civic Tech in terms of innovation, collaboration and even new streams of revenue.
The Future Fox’s research examines the relative impacts of Smart Cities and Civic Tech initiatives, asking what potential there is for Civic Tech to shape the Smart Cities agenda. In this session we also discuss how to develop and justify creative applications to scale up our technologies.
TICTeC supports the mission of the non-profit mySociety by bringing together practitioners, commentators, academics and funders to debate, network, and share research and knowledge in the civic tech field.
