Description

Smart (er) City Agencies is a workshop taking place at Smart Cities NYC´17.

Once you register for Smart Cities NYC´17 conference and expo, you´ll receive a code in your confirmation email with which you can register for any of our workshops. You cannot sign up for workshops without registering for the Smart Cities NYC '17.

The Smart(er) NYC Research Group, composed of scholars from 11 different universities and research institutes, is developing a series of case studies to map the ecology of innovation across New York City management agencies. More specifically, these case studies highlight four cross-cutting themes: (1) inter-agency connectivity and collaboration, (2) technology and real-time data collection, (3) responsiveness and decision-making, and (4) results and impact. The cases will be published by Columbia University Press and in this workshop we'll use our new Vision Zero case study to discuss how the city administration is innovating from within and how lessons learned can be replicated to other cities.
