Peterborough DNA – shaping a smarter, more sustainable city
You’ve probably come across the Peterborough DNA programme of work. It’s been running for over a year and thanks to funding from the government’s Technology Strategy Board is helping to make Peterborough a ‘future city’ - a place that is sustainable in all senses of the word and ready for the challenges ahead.
The programme is being delivered by Peterborough City Council and Opportunity Peterborough and has four key ‘strands’ of work:
- Innovation – embedding an innovation economy so that we approach city challenges in new ways and ensure business ideas flourish;
- Living Data – bringing city data to life for all local people to browse and explore. Who knows what bright ideas might be sparked by having health, education, population (and more) data at your fingertips;
- Skills – ensuring we have the local skills needed to grow in a sustainable way and take advantage of emerging green markets
- Smart Fengate – developing a circular economy among businesses in the area, helping companies be smarter about using resources.
