Launching the Metro21: Smart Cities Institute

Excerpt from Official Press Release: 

"Metro21 and its partners have played a critical role in establishing Pittsburgh as a global model for innovative cities," said CMU Interim President Farnam Jahanian. "Thanks to our strengths at the nexus of technology and humanity, CMU is generating real-world solutions to the evolving needs of our cities — including enhancing the delivery of city services, increasing the resiliency of urban infrastructure, and encouraging greater access and inclusion."

Working with the philanthropic community, corporate partners, the City of Pittsburgh, Allegheny County, and state and federal agencies, Metro21 has produced successful outcomes that other cities are implementing.

The March 2 event will include panel discussions and presentations from CMU faculty and partners, focusing on Metro21's future plans to accelerate its real-world impact and potential.
