During the French PR's visit to Singapore, a MoU between NUMA and Impact Hub Innovation was signed for the launch of the "DATA City" program


DATACITY is an open innovation program launched in 2015 in partnership with the City of Paris, which convenes City governments, corporates, startups and technical partners. Managed by NUMA & Impact HUB in Singapore, these actors work together throughout a 9-months program to define persistent urban challenges and develop innovative solutions to build more sustainable and efficient cities, using data and technology.


The NUMA/Impact HUB will launch the DATACITY Program in Singapore by the end of September, along with 7 other cities (Paris: 3rd edition, Casablanca: 2nd edition, London, Berlin, Barcelona, NYC, Mexico City).


The DATACITY Program in Singapore will replicate the program NUMA successfully rolled out in Paris over the past two years.


During this presentation you will learn more about DATACITY which deals with innovation acceleration among Corporates, Startups and Government agencies.


As an example of collaboration, C40 and NUMA recently partnered to design data based climate change solutions in cities.
