This innovative 'Future Cities Centre' innovation partnership between Cisco, UCL and Imperial will focus on London's Shoreditch, where businesses, academics and start-ups can openly collaborate. The Cisco collaboration space will be part of London's emerging 'Tech City' , which is the fastest growing technology cluster in Europe, and will seek to bring a world-leading research presence and collaborative working to the emerging Tech City ecosystem.
The Future Cities Centre will focus on the thematic areas of Future Cities and Mobility, Smart Energy Systems, the Internet of Things and Business Model Innovation.
