SMART LONDON BOARD
The Smart London Board was first brought together in 2013 to help advise the Mayor of London on how to put digital technology at the heart of plans to make London a better place to live, work and invest. Its members are leading experts in academia, business and entrepreneurship.
In its first year, the Board developed the Smart London Plan, a strategy for utilising smart technologies to help London remain a global leading city. The Plan was launched by the Mayor of London in December 2013 and the SLINs were created as a key commitment of the Plan.

Submit your project to be part of the Smart London Innovation Networks.
Tech businesses in London had the chance to pitch their innovative solutions to an audience of organisations involved in providing infrastructure across the capital, including UK Power Networks, National Grid and Thames Water, at an event at City Hall on 7 June.
The innovators were winners of a challenge-led competition, run by the Mayor of London in partnership with BRE, aimed at bringing forward new forms of technology that could help the capital’s major infrastructure providers gain a shared understanding of the location and state of their underground assets.
