Oxfordshire County Council Smart Oxford Department for Transport

Oxfordshire County Council

Oxfordshire is the most rural county in the South East. It has a population of around 666,100, one third of which lives in towns or villages of less than 10,000 people.

The county is a popular visitor destination for its rural beauty, numerous market towns and Oxford city itself, which has earned a global reputation for its academic and architectural splendour. Oxford is also a global centre of publishing.

Oxfordshire has consistently high levels of employment and the workforce is amongst the most highly-qualified in the country. World-class business clusters include bioscience, advanced motorsport engineering, scientific research and cryogenics.


Smart Oxford

Smart Oxford is the strategic programme of a wide range of city partners working together to develop and promote Oxford as a smart city. By 'smart' we mean creating an environment and infrastructure that engages with the current step-change in digital technologies to support the generation & sharing of city information and to facilitate the development of innovative city-related solutions more effectively, cheaply, sustainably, fairly and inclusively.

The Vision of Smart Oxford is of a city where innovative ideas, active citizens, and aligned stakeholders come together to co-create a better Oxford.

Our region has challenging environmental, transportation, social and housing problems, but also the capacity and capability to develop, test and deploy the technologies that can help address them.

Our aim is to build a stronger, safer, economically and environmentally sustainable city, to help its people to identify and be part of city solutions, to provide a testbed for world class researchers and innovators, to generate growth and jobs, to advance economic & social prosperity, and to help improve the quality, effectiveness and efficiency of city services.

Exeter City Futures City Science

Exeter CityFutures

Globally the world’s cities are faced with severe strains on their infrastructure, public services and their local and regional resources. Many are creating programmes to consider ways to redesign and reorganise to ensure that citizens get a better level of service, a better quality of life and the city prospers economically.

Exeter’s economic success means its population is growing, attracting commuters from across Devon and beyond, affecting and increasing the region’s energy use and costs. Without change, the strain on our roads and energy resources has the potential to negatively affect the well-being of citizens and our future sustainability.

The region’s challenge is to find solutions to reduce energy consumption and remove congestion in the face of increasing population and roads which are already at maximum capacity.


City Science

City Science is an analytics and software company that aims to revolutionize the way we capture and interpret data about cities. We enable data-driven decision making, providing insights and tools to make cities fit for the demands of modern living. Working with our partner cities we use data to develop new solutions, identify efficiency opportunities and inform policy options.


City Science is at the cutting edge of transportation research, combining data from multiple sources and modern big-data methods to create new insights about how people and goods move around our cities. We can provide holistic analyses of how your city is functioning, traditional transportation modelling, business case development, data capture advice, sustainable transport strategies, transport impact assessments and bespoke research into air quality, road safety or other transport-related issues.
