About IEEE Smart Cities

The Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Smart Cities Initiative is a global, multi-disciplinary effort launched in 2013 to help cities share knowledge, experiences, and good practices in the use of technology to enable better city management. The intent is to build a global network that fosters collaboration between industry, academia, and government within and across cities, and to bring the expertise of IEEE members to bear on that discussion. In late 2015, the IEEE Smart Cities Initiative and Casablanca as its fourth and fifth global Core Smart Cities. The beginning of Kansas City’s engagement with IEEE coincides with several other national smart city initiatives with a local footprint, along with the upcoming launch of the in downtown Kansas City. Kansas City’s commitment as an IEEE Core Smart City will help lead the discussion and develop content for the IEEE Smart City Network, and to engage potential Affiliate cities and other smart city networks with whom we participate in the U. S.
