Smart Cities. Big Ideas. National Partnerships: The MetroLab Network at Work in South Bend

Smart Cities

Addressing the challenges of today’s urban environment requires a collaborative effort, one that is multi-disciplinary, multi-agency, multi-university … sometimes even multi-city. The bottom line is that we’re in this together. And, if we want to make a difference in urban areas regarding health, mobility, security and opportunity, aging infrastructure, and environmental sustainability, we need to work together.

This panel discussion brings together members of the MetroLab Network from the national level as well as those working locally to make a difference and develop effective solutions that help cities and their residents benefit from technologies and leverage the resources available to them.
