CityVerve brings together the brightest minds and pioneering technologies to help create a smart, innovative, inspiring Manchester.
The CityVerve Project brings together the latest Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, deployed at city scale to deliver transformative benefits: new business and jobs for Manchester; better healthcare, transport and environment; and more engaged and empowered citizens.
It was established in July 2016 with a two-year remit to demonstrate the capability of IoT applications and address barriers to deploying smart cities, such as city governance, network security, user trust and adoption, interoperability, scalability and justifying investment. Combining technology and business model innovations, it will create a real-life blueprint for smart cities worldwide.
Led by Manchester City Council, the consortium of 21 organisations – including Manchester Science Partnerships, the University of Manchester, Cisco, Ordnance Survey and other tech players – is backed by Government and Innovate UK. [readmore]
