We implement a collaborative local-to-global approach to improving government transformation and systems change through a citizen-centered, principles-based, and applied research led approach to complex multi-stakeholder data related problems.

Partners throughout the world at local, regional, and national scales benefit from our ability to improve governmental and stakeholder capacity in adopting ethical data practices, managing organisational culture change, and translating data issues to policy contexts. We develop capacity and policies to improve transparency and accountability, increase inclusivity, and build the open smart communities of the future.

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, mobilizing knowledge, and building partnerships to develop interdisciplinary understandings of data ecosystems; and, 3) Sharing findings locally-to-globally to new situations to broaden our perspective and impact.
