In order to achieve the goal of sustainable smart cities, strong collaborations in research and technology are critical. For this reason, six German urban research networks are building partnerships in the US to develop innovative solutions and joint projects for resource-efficient and climate-adapted cities of the future. The GCRI is inviting American researchers, urban planners, architects, decision-makers, municipal authorities and representatives from the private sector to participate and share their ideas to build the cities of tomorrow.
