This Research Engagement Day convenes select Smart Cities leaders to explore cutting edge research and to stimulate new collaborative relationships across the private and public sectors in the New Jersey region.

The world's metropolitan regions house over 50 percent of the world population, consume about 75 percent of worldwide energy, and emit about 80 percent of greenhouse gasses. By 2050, they will house about 70 percent of all people.

This is a showcase of New Jersey university research for integrating urban infrastructure with networked sensors, data analytics, and other novel technologies to improve quality of life, resiliency and sustainability in urban environments. A key objective of the day is identifying new opportunities for collaboration between universities, industry, foundations, and government in this important field.
