We implement a collaborative local-to-global approach to improving smart cities through empirical research applied to urban problems.

Partners throughout the world at local, regional, and national scales benefit from our ability to improve governmental capacity to adopt innovation, data, and connected technology. We develop capacity and policies to improve government transparency and accountability, increase civic participation, and build stronger communities.

As we expand, we are committed to three pillars in our future work: 1) Supporting municipalities and their citizens to become open smart cities; 2) Conducting applied research to develop innovative urban governance at all governmental scales; and, 3) Sharing findings locally-to-globally to new situations to broaden our perspective and impact.
