Smart thinking. Smart city.

Smart thinking. Smart city.

Newcastle has a long history of innovation, from Joseph Swan’s arc lighting on Mosley Street in 1880, to the "smartest" street in the UK in 2018.

Recognised as Digital Leaders’ UK Smart City of the Year 2019, we were then in 2020 ranked 23rd on the global IMD Smart Cities Index.

Newcastle is embracing technology, data, and new ways of working to deliver better services and improve people’s lives – across public services, through world leading academic research and a vibrant tech sector.
