The city of Bristol is looking for technology partners and projects to test technologies on its city-wide network. Bristol Is Open is a joint venture between the University of Bristol and Bristol City Council. The project won the judges’ choice at the Mobile World Congress GLOMO awards ceremony in February, and was cited for its test bed aspect and its city operations centre’s influence on broader urban policy. In addition, Bristol was named as number 1 in the UK Smart Cities Index, commissioned by Huawei UK and conducted by Navigant Consulting.

Ten projects are already running on the platform and cover smart home and energy, live energy consumption data from smart goods, and air quality and mobility data to help identify the least polluted and safest routes to walk around the city. Bristol is Open is welcoming a range of partners to the project, including large telecom and software companies, small hi-tech start-ups, public service delivery organisations, academics and others. The network would be open to them in the testing, exploration and development of products and services that could then lead to commercial product improvements and launch.
