The Civic Innovation Challenge is Here!

The National Science Foundation, in partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy and U.S. Department of Homeland Security, has launched the Civic Innovation Challenge, a $9 million research and action competition focused on mobility and resilience priorities. MetroLab contributed to the design of “CIVIC” and is supporting the effort through a cooperative agreement with NSF.

WE HIGHLIGHT TRANSFORMATIVE PROJECTS

We showcase impactful tech, data, and innovation projects underway between cities, counties, and universities through our Innovation of the Month series.

WE EXPLORE CUTTING EDGE ISSUES IN GOVERNMENT

MetroLab’s Data Science and Human Services Lab brings together academics, city and county practitioners, and non-profit leaders to consider the issues at the intersection of technology, analytics, and human services deployment.
