EXIST Exeter Meet-up
EXIST Exeter Science & Technology event

Over 100 people turned up to Sandy Park to EXIST’s first quarterly meeting of 2016. The event was co-hosted by the newly formed Exeter City Futures. Liz O’Driscoll newly appointed Head of Innovation at Exeter City Futures talked about Urban Innovation and how the World’s population is increasingly moving into cities, this includes Exeter. She talked about the opportunities and challenges of the Smart City and how Exeter is ideally placed to be an exemplar – it’s big enough to matter but small enough to achieve a coordinated integrated Smart City.

Exeter City Futures say they are in it for the long term and expect this to be the start of at least a 10 year process building Exeter into a Smart City that the people of Exeter want. The challenges and opportunities relating to Exeter was a running theme for the following talks around, Health, Transportation and Energy.
