Y Lab is launching 'Innovation Conversations' a series of talks by experienced innovators to inspire and encourage organisations and individuals to be ambitious, showing real-world examples and case studies from around the world.
Aida Esteban, Head of Business Development at Citymart will discuss how local authorities around the world have used the Citymart platform to support innovation and see it in action. Hear about how Citymart helped San Francisco upgrade its urban lighting system using open technology standards, how London matched health tech start-ups to chronically ill citizens to co-create better solutions and how Santiago de Chile reduced wait times and improved accessibility to primary health services by collaborating with start-ups.
