Description



MK:Smart Technology Employability and Graduate Fair at University Campus Milton Keynes on Wednesday 24th February 11am to 2.30pm brings opportunities with innovative start-ups and SME’s

The MK:Smart Technology Employability & Graduate Fair brings an exciting opportunity for jobs and work placements, connecting citizens, students and businesses together. The population of Milton Keynes is forecast to grow by 20% over the next 12-15 years. The challenge of supporting this growth, without exceeding the capacity of the infrastructure, while meeting challenging carbon reduction targets, is very real.

MK:Smart is a large £16M smart city, big data project at the heart of Milton Keynes. It is jointly funded by HEFCE ( Higher Education Funding Council for England) and a consortium which includes Industry ( BT, E.ON, Anglian Water, Samsung, Huawei and Tech Mahindra), Higher Education ( Open University, University of Cambridge and University Campus Milton Keynes) and Public sector ( Milton Keynes Council, Satellite Catapult and Transport Catapult). A full list of all MK:SMART partners is available at http://www.mksmart.org/organisations/.

The project is led by the Open University and will develop innovative solutions to support the significant growth of Milton Keynes. Central to the project is the creation of a state of the art MK Data Hub which will support the acquisition and management of vast amounts of data relevant to city systems from a variety of sources. Building on this capability MK:Smart will put in place innovative actions in the transport, energy and water management sectors; educational activities centred on the smart city theme; and an ambitious programme of business and community engagement activities.

We are engaging with SME’S (Small to Medium Sized Businesses) to drive forward innovation for a smart Milton Keynes at University Campus Milton Keynes ( UCMK). Our activities include working with these businesses to build solutions to a variety of real-world issues that affect Milton Keynes and Smart Cities. The MK:Smart Technology Employability & Graduate Fair brings an exciting opportunity to connect citizens, students and businesses together, offering job opportunities, work placements and a real opportunity to drive forward smart city solutions.

UCMK is a new campus of the University of Bedfordshire providing Higher Education in the heart of Central Milton Keynes. It is located within easy reach of London, Cambridge and Oxford.
