Are you interested in Smart Communities? Would you like to see how your city/county/community/organization can get involved?

Join us for the Georgia Smart Communities Fall Workshop on Thursday, September 5, 2019.

The workshop will showcase the final work product of the 1st class of the Georgia Smart Communities Challenge projects and their research. These projects were started in September 2018 and have now completed their year-long engagement. These smart communities projects provide real world examples of how communities have tackled challenges in mobility and resilience using smart technologies and research.

Panelists will discuss how Smart Cities can foster community growth through connectivity. The Georgia Smart Communities Challenge 2nd class of communities will also introduce and kickoff their projects.

This workshop is intended for:

  • City and County Officials
