Reuters Mobility Hub webinar: London post Covid-19: Smart Tech and Harnessing Data for the Public Good

Covid-19 has turned the world as we know it upside down. From a smart city and mobility perspective, the conversation has shifted from technology, regulation and infrastructure to public health and the end-user.

In the latest Reuters Mobility Hub webinar ‘London post Covid-19: Smart Tech and Harnessing Data for the Public Good,’ featuring Greater London Authority and LOTI,  participants will discuss how one of the smartest cities on the planet is using data and tech to respond to global pandemic.

With millions shifting to home working and relying more than ever on technology to facilitate their business operations and enable even more independent lifestyles, this is now the time for governments to harness data as an asset for the public good.

The webinar will discuss how local government can respond to systemic shifts and use data insights to develop London’s smart infrastructure, inform future policy and build better urban resilience.

  • Theo Blackwell MBE, Chief Digital Officer, The Mayor's Office, Greater London Authority
