    DPC have been carrying out 11 years of research initially around data management and then the concept of smart cities, trying to understand the challenge cities face on a daily basis.

    We have designed a model that will deliver the foundations for a strategic approach to create social impact whilst using technology as an enabler to being SMART. We offer consultancy in the areas of Smart City, Digital Twin, Carbon Net Zero and Cyber Security.
