Encourage formal, institutionalized, multi-disciplinary, multi-agency partnerships focused on RD&D. City-University partnerships can serve as innovation engines in city government that transcends political cycles and industry contracts.
Facilitate the scaling of successful RD&D approaches. Leverage the network to develop tools and resources that support collaborative efforts between cities and universities. Accelerate best practices, data standards, and methods.
Organize labs that bring together similar but previously uncoordinated efforts in different communities. Create a platform for multi-city multi-university teams to address complex, long-term challenges.
