Sparta Digital becomes a Key Player in Manchester–China Smart city projects


Manchester, 03 July, 2015

As part of Digital China’s visit to Manchester last week, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed between Sir Richard Leese, Leader, Manchester City Council and Xie Yun, Chief Executive, Smart City service group, Digital China on Friday. Key figures from Manchester City Council, representatives from local businesses engaged in Smart City projects including Sparta Digital were present during the ceremony. This helps build on Manchester’s active engagement, as one of the leading cities in the EU - China Smart Cities Forum.  This complements the recent agreement with Wuhan and the Smart Green Cities: Planning and Governance project launched earlier this year in Wuhan.

This will help provide the basis for developing a longer-term joint   collaboration   between   local   businesses,   public sector organisations and academic communities to help accelerate activity in smart city solutions and technologies. Specifically, it will help to establishing a demonstration suite and program of collaboration on ideas and solutions for Manchester and China. It would also help in supporting SMEs in enabling them to deploy their solutions across Chinese markets. Sparta Digital presented one of its solutions, the Community-Hub and Do-it mobile app which is being developed as part of an EU project CROSS along with Manchester City Council. Sparta Digital and Digital China are keen to continue the discussion on the community-hub platform which offers a new bottom-up approach to service delivery, and helps in developing the sharing economy where money doesn’t change hands.

 Adrian Slatcher, City Policy team, said: “Sparta were one of the companies who represented Manchester at the Barcelona Smart City Expo last November, and so it’s great to see them doing so well in attracting new partnerships for new and innovative applications which can be developed to benefit citizens and businesses”

Also Zulf Choudhary, CEO of Sparta Digital, said: “Sparta is leading the way for innovative solutions and user focused engagement applications that are at the core of our strategy. We are working hard to bring more projects to Manchester and looking forward to creating more opportunities for the Northwest. China offers huge collaboration opportunities and markets for those who know how to work both in China and the UK and helps creates jobs in the UK”.
