UK-Oman Smart Cities Collaboration Webinar

9th June 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

A key pillar of Oman’s Vision 2040 is to establish a sustainable environment promoting balanced, resilient ecosystems whilst protecting natural resources. Building smart cities lies at the heart of this objective.

With smart cities in the UK growing in number and sophistication, the UK has expertise in smart city development from policy and planning to sound governance involving both academia and business.

This webinar will share Oman’s Digital Economy outlook and ambitions for the Sultanate and a deep dive of Oman’s Smart Cities from the Connected Places Catapult, the UK’s innovation accelerator for cities, transport and places.

It will highlight opportunities for future collaboration and smart city partnerships between Oman and the UK and is for Oman’s Smart City stakeholders and interested UK businesses.
