London’s population is expected to grow to nearly ten million by 2030, placing pressures on resources, infrastructure and communities.

The Smart London Innovation Networks (SLINs) have been created to support the development of the Mayor of London's vision for "smart city" innovation that addresses resource pressures whilst creating new economic and research opportunities.

The SLINs are a key commitment of the Smart London Plan, developed by the Smart London Board and launched by the Mayor of London in December 2013. They provide a forum for collaboration and sharing of best practice, as well as a platform for bringing new smart city innovation to market.

There are currently two SLINs. The Smart London Districts Network, launched in 2014, brings together public and private development organisations delivering London’s largest and most ambitious development districts. The Smart London Infrastructure Network is comprised of organisations delivering London’s infrastructure services, primarily the utilities responsible for water, energy, telecommunications and waste management.
