The Plymouth Plan supports the city working in smart and more connected ways as part of Plymouth’s growth agenda.
Plymouth has an active Smart City group led through Plymouth University. Members include Plymouth Community Homes, Plymouth University, Plymouth College of Art and Plymouth City Council.
The city is open to experimenting and testing smart or future tech and opening data that supports business ideas and opportunities to improve how we work.
DATA Play is about discovering new ways of working with local talent and tech companies and to explore how data and technology can help deliver services in entirely new ways.
DATA Play days bring together: organisations that are involved in planning the future of the city, those that work with communities, local residents and community groups and tech and digital innovators to explore opportunities using the data and technology in the city.
The Council and other organisations are opening their data on plymouth.thedata.place, a new social enterprise start-up from Plymouth that enables organisations to share their open data in a more hassle-free usable way.
Data is being visualised on Data Plymouth
