April's RTP 180 Topic | Smart Cities

By 2050 there will be a predicted seven billion people living in urban areas; so how do we maximize efficiency, enhance quality, and reduce resource consumption? The answer is developing smart cities – urban developments that integrate technology to manage a city’s transportation systems, water supply networks, power plants, waste management, and other community services.

Future Cities & Cleantech Networking
Join the Research Triangle Cleantech Cluster and the Research Triangle Park prior to April's RTP180 event to learn about the technologies and companies taking the lead in Smart Cities conversations and making the Research Triangle region a global cleantech leader.
5:00pm-6:00pm in the atrium.
