Welcome to the Center for Urban Innovation

Georgia Tech’s Center for Urban Innovation (CUI) combines technology and policy through interdisciplinary research on smart, sustainable cities and regions.

CUI thinks globally and acts locally by investing in interdisciplinary, scholarly research on urban issues and the expanding role of institutions in designing and governing resilient regional economies. Uniquely positioned within a world-leading technological research university and a global city, CUI was launched in 2014 to pursue research-driven discoveries that solve problems faced by cities and regions internationally.

Together, CUI and our partners—Georgia Tech faculty, universities around the country, nonprofits, civic organizations, public agencies, and tech industry businesses—prove the value of investment in collaborative research to drive innovation in stakeholder communities on the local, national, and international level.

We invite you to be a part of this vibrant partnership. Join the urban innovation conversation, and help better prepare our cities—and our world—to face the challenges of today and tomorrow.
