Welcome to the Smart Cities UK Awards website. This is the inaugural awards for Smart Cities UK and will take place on the 1st February 2017 as part of the two day Smart Cities UK Conference and Expo.

The awards will honour those Cities across the UK whom have demonstrated use of technology and innovation to overcome challenges. These challenges can range from Transport, health, environment, security and much more. Across the UK we are seeing strong evidence that smart thinking is taking place amongst local authorities and through collaborations with industry.

From Glasgow to Cambridge we are witnessing a wealth of smart approaches to tackle both social and economic challenges. The Smart Cities UK Awards will honour those organisations and individuals who have overcome challenges and developed smart approaches to advance their City.

The awards will be judges by a number of leading experts within each category who will decide on which applications to take forward to the evening. Deadline to apply is November 11th, Shortlist announced November 30th. Following the Awards we will publish an Annual Evidence Report citing each application and what it has achieved which will be available to download and distributed to both local and central government.
