Connected cities mission: apply to join trade delegation to India

Businesses can join a November trade visit to India and explore its multi-billion pound smart cities market.

The Department for International Trade, Innovate UK and the UK Defence and Security Organisation are seeking businesses with expertise in fields that could allow them to take advantage of the growing smart cities market in India.

Successful businesses will have the opportunity to participate in the India-UK Tech Summit in New Delhi, take part in market briefings, visit other cities including Pune and Kochi, and pitch to potential customers, partners and investors.

The November trade mission is likely to offer opportunities in:

  • waste management
  • the circular economy
  • water and waster water management
  • hygiene
  • greater access to open public spaces and pedestrian friendly infrastructure
  • intelligent transport

This latest mission follows a successful Connected Cities Mission to South East Asia in March 2016, when 10 businesses were able to showcase their expertise and make connections that are already generating value.
