Smart Cities and Inclusive Innovation

Smart Cities and Inclusive Innovation

IPaT’s work in this area focuses on the daily lives of communities – how they live, work and play. We are finding innovative approaches to shaping sustainable cities with research that thinks globally while acting locally. We're examining the transformative role of technology in transportation, civic engagement, and disaster recovery focusing on novel communication and information technologies to aid communities during disaster and crisis situations.
