This is part of the MK:Smart programme, which is a Smart City, Big Data Project at the heart of Milton Keynes led by The Open University. We will look at data from various sources about local energy and water consumption, as well as transport activity in MK, and use this information to tackle key demand issues in Milton Keynes. Community engagement is an essential ingredient for creating a successful smart city. Who better to suggest solutions for improving Milton Keynes than the people who live here? That’s why MK:Smart is setting up a Citizen Lab, which will combine local community action with a space for social innovation, when it comes to findings solutions regarding  water, energy, transport and education.
