What are the goals of the Global City Teams Challenge?
Who should join the Global City Teams Challenge?
How does the Global City Teams Challenge Work?
"Action clusters," composed of representatives of innovative local governments, non-profits, and private companies will form through NIST and US Ignite events and the US Ignite website. These teams volunteer to work collaboratively to build, deploy, or test transformative-yet-specific IoT applications. As of April 2015, there are over 40 action clusters working on projects with nearly 200 organizations. More details about specific action clusters and projects are available here.
Why participate in a Global City Team "Action Cluster"?
The Challenge is an opportunity for forward-looking communities to partner with public and private organizations to accelerate the deployment of IoT technologies designed to address some of the most pressing challenges facing cities. The Challenge also benefits innovative companies and non-profits by giving them a chance to implement and/or assess their solutions in valuable municipal testbeds, and provides them with exposure to scores of potential new customers.
Join the Challenge Now
US Ignite, a nonprofit focused on the creation of next-generation Internet applications that provide transformative public benefit, is partnering with NIST and hosting a website where communities and technology innovators can view and share the action clusters.
