Event Details

India is the world’s fastest growing large economy and is witnessing rapid urbanisation. Indian cities are expected to have a population of 600 million by 2030. This presents challenges but also offers opportunities.

In 2015 the new Indian Government lauched the India Smart Cities Mission - an ambitious plan to develop 100 smart cities and undertake urban transformation of 400 smaller towns and cities. Together, these 500 cities would account for 70% of India’s urban population.

The Indian government has allocated 7.5 billion USD to its smart cities mission with the aim to developing smart and sustainable urban centres offering an improved quality of life to its population.

This has created opportunities for Scottish businesses across a range of sectors. The UK has also partnered with India to support the development of three smart cities – Pune, Amravati and Indore. This seminar will give you with an understanding of India’s smart cities mission and the emerging opportunities for Scottish companies.

Key opportunities exist in:

  • ICT systems
  • Data analytics
  • Sensor technology
  • Smart grids
  • Clean energy
  • Water and waste management
  • Smart mobility
  • Healthcare
  • Urban planning and construction
