The Urban Systems Collaborative is an inter-disciplinary community that facilitates the integration and “smartening” of existing systems, and the creation of new systems with the intent of advancing certain individual, community and global goals (see below).

Here are some of the important features we look for in cities. Click Here to see Urban Systems Collaborative
