Session Abstract

This session will discuss national smarter city initiatives and address the challenges in interconnecting academic networks with civic networks. Initiatives to be discussed include US Ignite, the Global City Teams Challenge 2016, US UCAN, Metro-21, and another program expected to be announced by October. Everyone agrees that smarter cities will require the involvement of their academic institutions, and this session will squarely address both the policy issues and the technology issues in making these partnerships work.
