Four proposals shortlisted in Future Cities Demonstrator competition

29 Nov 2012

Proposals from four cities have been shortlisted for final interview as the Technology Strategy Board’s £24 million Future Cities Demonstrator competition nears conclusion.

30 Local Authorities were awarded grants of £50,000 in July 2012 to develop feasibility studies and we are pleased to report that 26 submitted project proposals by the 14 November 2012 deadline. The feasibility studies will be made public in due course as part of the competition process.

The applications have now been assessed and the four shortlisted project proposals are (in alphabetical order);

  • Bristol
  • Glasgow
  • London
  • Peterborough

Final interviews will be held on 5 December 2012 and the winner will be announced in January 2013.

The Technology Strategy Board is keen to build upon the involvement of all the Local Authorities who have given so much time and enthusiasm throughout this process, and aim to continue working together.  We will be exploring further opportunities to collaborate and develop the ideas and themes addressed in the applications, for example through the development of the Future Cities Catapult centre due to open next year.
