The Smart City concept, while well established internationally, has not been a focus for the City of Sydney. Cities like Barcelona, Singapore, Copenhagen, Toronto and New York are successfully applying data driven technology to improve the way that their community operates in a range of areas from planning and consultation, to service delivery and community engagement.
We want to bring local government innovation to the City and position Sydney as leader globally. The Sydney Matters Independent Team will extend a focus on innovation into technology sector engagement where we will introduce new policies to ensure that the start-up sector flourishes in the City.
