US City/County/University

We have a current city/county-university partnership but we aren’t members of the network.

If you have already formalized the relationship between your city/county and university by signing a Memorandum of Understanding and beginning work on three research, development, and deployment projects, you are eligible to complete a membership application.  Please see below for the application. A copy of the signed MOU should be submitted alongside the application.


Membership Application

I am interested in developing a formal partnership with my city, county or university.

If you have not yet begun to work with your regional cities, counties, or universities, take a look at our guide to successful city/county-university partnerships. You’ll see it suggests a Memorandum of Understanding between partners. This should be signed by the Mayor or County Executive and University President or Provost.

Non-US City/County/University

Non-US-based partnerships

Starting in January 2019, MetroLab Network will be kicking off an initial one-year trial for non-US based partnerships to join the Network. At this juncture, we will be accepting applications from city/county-university partnerships based in North America (including the Caribbean) and the United Kingdom.

Requirements to apply for membership will be the same as it is for US-based partnerships. If you have any questions about our expansion plans, please contact us at:

The partnership aims to bring technology, data, and analytics, to local government by investing in R&D and professional development across MetroLab’s city, county, and university partners.
