MetroLab Network does not currently have an open application window, however applications will be reviewed by the steering committee and members may be accepted on a rolling basis depending on the strength of the partnership.

For Cities, Counties and Universities

We have a current city/county-university partnership but we aren’t members of the network.

I am interested in developing a formal partnership with my city, county or university.

I have an existing partnership with the network and would like to add a member.

If your city has already formalized the relationship between your city/county and university by signing a Memorandum of Understanding and beginning work on three research, development, and deployment projects. We invite you to complete our membership application. A copy of the signed MOU should be submitted alongside the application.

Membership Application

If you have not yet begun to work with your regional cities, counties, or universities, take a look at our  guide to successful city/county-university partnerships. You’ll see it suggests a Memorandum of Understanding between partners. This should be signed by the Mayor or County Executive and University President or Provost.

Existing MetroLab Network members may bring on additional university partners by completing the membership application defining three additional research, development, and deployment projects as well as submitting a signed Memorandum of Understanding with the city/county and university.
