About MetroLab Network

MetroLab Network is a group of more than 35 city-university partnerships focused on bringing data, analytics, and innovation to city government. Its members include 38 cities, 4 counties, and 51 universities. The Network’s mission is to pair university researchers with city policymakers to undertake research, development, and deployment projects that improve our infrastructure, public services, and environmental sustainability. The Network was launched as part of the White House’s Smart Cities Initiative in September 2015.
