Urban innovation and research labs & programs
June 12, 2015 | By Peter Bihr |
[Work in progress!] Starting a list of urban innovation labs & programs, research programs in that field and the like.
What will be included in this list? At the outset the programs, initiatives and labs that support smart city development and urban innovation but are not pilot smart city projects with their own infrastructure; that support and enable the development and/or provide guidance/policy, but don’t run the technical platforms. One-time events aren’t currently included, but rather ongoing hubs/labs/programs.
- UK Future Cities Catapult (UK government funded)
- Code for America and their international network Code for All, like Code for Berlin
- Bloomberg Philantropies government innovation iniative including the programs What Works Cities, Mayors Challenge and Innovation Teams.
