Part funded by the European Regional Development Fund, Smart Oxford is the strategic programme of a wide range of city partners working together to develop and promote Oxford as a smart city.
By ‘smart’ we mean creating an environment and infrastructure that engages with the current step-change in digital technologies to support the generation & sharing of city information and to facilitate the development of innovative city-related solutions more effectively, cheaply, sustainably, fairly and inclusively.
How is the initiative co-ordinated?
The Smart Oxford initiative is overseen by the Oxford Strategic Partnership (OSP), a set of collaborating organisations from across the public sector (for example, the City & County Councils, NHS, & Police), academia (e.g. University of Oxford & Oxford Brookes University), business (e.g. Unipart) and voluntary and community organisations (e.g. Oxfordshire Community and Voluntary Action). An overview of the OSP membership is given here.
Day-to-day co-ordination and planning of the Smart Oxford programme is carried out by members of the Smart Oxford project board, individuals drawn from local organisations. The current board membership is viewable here
and its remit is given below.
