On Wednesday 1st May 2019 IAWM’s Smart City Alliance had the pleasure of supporting Birmingham City University (BCU) for the launch of the ‘CityGate’ urban data platform. It was really overwhelming to see such a great turnout at Millennium Point, Birmingham, with over 50 regional innovation experts coming together to engage with our ‘data’ themed event.
The morning kicked off with a special welcome from BCU’s Prof Andrew Aftelak, Head of the School of Computing and Digital Technology followed by a series of data focussed initiatives including Birmingham in Real Time; The Big Data Corridor; and West Midlands 5G, introduced by Dr Adel Aneiba, Associate Professor in IoT. The event was rounded off by a Smart IP session delivered by the Intellectual Property Office and Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership.
