NGA Experts Roundtable on Creating a "Smart State Initiative"

This information provided by Smart Cities Council Global.

This event is open by invitation only to leaders of smart state initiatives and industry representatives, including several Smart Cities Council Partners.

The National Governors Association (NGA), in collaboration with the Smart Cities Council and the state of Illinois, is hosting a roundtable to inform the development of a nation-wide “Smart States” initiative. 

 Building upon successful “Smart Cities” efforts in the U.S. and abroad, NGA is seeking to launch a new effort to help states identify how they can use information and communication technology (ICT) to enhance economic development, sustainability, resilience, and quality of life across urban, suburban and rural communities while improving the operational efficiency of state government.  The NGA is partnering in this effort with the state of Illinois, a first-mover in smart states work, and the Smart Cities Council, an association of leading companies that has advised cities and states globally. 

 This roundtable will gather experts from state, local and federal government, the private sector, academia and research organizations to provide guiding observations and input to help the NGA craft this new initiative.
