The Kansas City Smart City Living Lab is a smart city development lab, managed by Think Big Partners, building on the Kansas City Smart City Initiative. A unique public-private partnership that is designed to accelerate civic and industrial internet of things (IoT) innovation.
The Living Lab creates a framework that facilitates meaningful dialogues between innovators and city officials that takes some of the guesswork out of building problem-focused smart city IoT solutions.
Launching A Project IN THE Smart CITY LIVING LAB
The Smart City Living Lab Access Program (SCLLAP) leverages our corporate, academic and governmental partners’ capabilities to create trusted partnerships that accelerate smart city technology innovation.
We are principally focused in areas that pose the greatest challenges (and most opportunities) for cities to create new solutions to modernize infrastructure, save money, increase efficiency or create new revenue streams that are vital to provide a better citizen experience using internet of things smart city technology.
Why should you attend this webinar?
It is imperative for cities to implement new and often emerging technologies – smart city technologies - that can lower a city’s operating cost, improve efficiency, create new revenue streams while also providing citizens the highest quality of life possible. But how do cities select the right technologies that deliver real value and find the money to pay for it?
