Futures Catalyst. To fully realize the potential of smarter cities and regions, governments need the skills to plan for, and actively manage, increasingly sophisticated technologies. To anticipate the effects and tradeoffs of the design choices of emerging technological infrastructures and have the deep understanding necessary to use them. CSCR works with local and regional governments to develop capacities to anticipate, design, experiment, iterate, and manage emerging technologies to meet public needs and implement specific actions.
Community Nexus. CSCR works as a boundary organization to collaborate with publics, community groups and non-profits through public engagement and public science to foster the ability of communities to envision, articulate, and bring about the future they want.
Educational Programs. CSCR has developed educational program offerings around smart and connected cities/regions in close collaboration with SFIS.
Innovation Hub. The Center serves as a national and, potentially, international hub for discussions about the future of cities and regions, hosting events, meetings, and speakers.
