New York smart cities innovation partnership
A new partnership has launched to enable the integration of emerging technologies into public services. It is called the New York Smart Cities Innovation Partnership.
If your company is interested, you can complete this indication of interest form and plan to attend a July 7 webinar. Both established and start-up companies in New York State have developed technologies with potential smart cities applications that can improve government services and resident quality of life. This list includes the areas of focus for the program:
- Smart Mobility & Traffic Flow Systems
- Real-Time Utility Monitoring
- Unmanned Aerial Systems & Drones
- Smart Agriculture & Clean Food Solutions
- Clean Energy & Environmental Solutions
- Health Technology
- Supply Chain Solutions
- Water Purification & Containment Removal
The program begins with cities, counties, towns, and villages applying to be “municipal testbeds” by May 31, 2020. To apply, they must partner with a designated anchor institution—generally, a university research center with a relevant technology focus area—that will serve as project manager and technical advisor.
Then, in July, the testbed opportunities will be published. At that time, technology companies can apply to implement their smart cities solutions in the selected municipal testbeds.
With the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is anticipated that the program will also serve as an important resource for implementing critical health technologies, including long-term patient communication, or for enhancing remote and digital access to government and social services.
