About Us: Georgia Tech's Smart Cities and Inclusive Innovation

Organizer of Georgia Smart Workshops and the Georgia Smart Communities Challenge

In partnership with the Institute for People and Technology and located in Tech Square's Centergy Building, Georgia Tech’s initiative on Smart Cities and Inclusive Innovation develops innovative approaches to shaping resilient and sustainable communities. Through research and development, strategic partnerships, and cutting-edge programming we bring Georgia Tech's interdisciplinary expertise in technology and policy to the development of smart cities and communities.

We use a smart cities ecosystem approach that spans multiple technology domains—such as information and communication technologies (ICTs), intelligent infrastructure, smart energy systems, and the Internet of Things (IoT) and incorporates policy expertise — on open data policies, public-private partnerships, and city-university collaborations—to present innovative solutions to challenges—such as the urban-rural digital divide, advanced mobility, civic engagement, and resilience. Through this interdisciplinary research and engagement, Georgia Tech seeks to shape sustainable cities, communities, and regions locally, nationally, and globally.
