IPaT Thursday Think Tank: Georgia Smart Communities Challenge

Networking: 3:30 pm

Discussion: 3:45 - 5 pm

Are you interested in smart communities development? On Thursday, February 8, the Georgia Tech’s Smart Cities and Inclusive Innovation initiative team will share information about the upcoming Georgia Smart Communities Challenge. The challenge aims to foster public sector awareness and adoption of advanced technologies and data by supporting local governments across Georgia as they plan for and implement these technologies in their communities. A local Georgia government must lead each team and include a Georgia Tech research component around smart mobility and building resilience. Join us to learn more about the challenge and share your interests and ideas.

Moderators:
Debra Lam, Managing Director, Smart Cities and Inclusive Innovation, Georgia Tech
Andrew Hardin, Research Engineer II, Georgia Tech Research Institute
