Second two-year programme for Cambridge DC2 Digital Cities research programme
The Ove Arup Foundation's support for the DC2 Digital Cities project at Cambridge University is set to continue for a second two-year programme.
The research addresses the disciplinary gulf that exists between city managers, engineers and urban designers. The programme's designers have identified a need for built-environment professionals to be trained in a broad range of disciplines and tools that bridge infrastructure and city management solutions in order to develop the opportunities presented by the digital economy.
The research programme addresses the gaps and identifies the digital tools required to deliver a smart city that benefits the citizens it serves.
This programme is delivered by a team of experts from the Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction (CSIC) at the University of Cambridge.
Phase 2 will build on the learning from Phase 1, through three major strands of activity:
- exploring and understanding new use cases;
- expanding competency framework;
- design of educational approach.
