Our host, Rowena Burns, chief executive of Manchester Science Partnerships, was joined in the studio this month by David Albatev. David’s spells at Nesta and Innovate UK (when it was still known as the Technology Strategy Board) have given him a wealth of knowledge about what makes a city smart – and what makes a smart city work. In particular, David was able to bring his ranging experience to bear on the question of how well the UK is doing on a global scale. The signs are largely encouraging, but there’s always more that can be done. Asset Mapping’s Bill Clee also stopped by to go against the clock in our regular ‘Meet the Partners’ challenge, and David made a deposit into our virtual Room 101 of vacuous vocab.
