MetroLab Network advisory council to guide smart-city partnerships

The smart-city movement gains a new ally in leadership and organization amid one of government's fastest growing endeavors.

'Smart-city group MetroLab Network announced the creation Thursday of an advisory council that will help guide member cities in the pursuit of innovative technology projects.

Martin O’Malley — the former Maryland governor, Baltimore mayor and Democratic presidential candidate — will be chairman. The council will provide strategic advice as city and university members pursue technology projects oriented around data, transportation, energy, civic engagement and emerging technologies.

"Partnerships across sectors will drive urban innovation," O'Malley said in a news release. "We are thrilled to have leaders from government, academia, industry, and non-profit helping guide our activity at MetroLab. Our city and university members will be well-served by their experiences, activities and insights."

O'Malley commented in June during the Smart Cities Innovation Summit in Austin, Texas, that citizens of cities today are exhibiting higher levels of trust thanks to initiatives around the nation that take on issues of transparency and connectivity.'>>>
