Answer for Smart London Board (1)

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Smart London Board was established by my Deputy Mayor for Business & Enterprise as an informal body advising on the development of a 'Smart London' vision that puts technological innovation at the heart of making the capital an even better place to live, work and invest.

Given the specialist nature of the Board and the fact that there are a limited number of people with the requisite skills and experience, key individuals from London's world-leading universities and businesses were personally invited to join.
