A kickoff event was held in C4DI to bring together interested parties from Hull and East Yorkshire. This included potential users of new technology, infrastructure providers and businesses. The goal was to identify ways of collaborating to accelerate the delivery of benefits in our communities and businesses.
The morning session focused on ways of getting a community started and some initial project areas. In the afternoon the focus was on the technology with demonstrations of several applications. Paul Foster (Microsoft) gave an overview of the success of the Norwich and Norfolk community working in this area.
