The Smart & Connected Communities Virtual Principal Investigator's Meeting will be held from Wednesday, April 7 through Friday, April 9.

NSF's Smart & Connected Communities effort aims to advance understanding of our cities and communities to improve their functioning and quality of life within them through innovations in computing, engineering, information and physical sciences, social, and learning sciences. NSF envisions that the work of researchers across a wide range of academic disciplines, in close collaboration with diverse community stakeholders, will together transform advances in areas such as economic development, education and learning, energy, environmental quality, public health and wellness, public safety, social services, telecommunications, transportation, and many others. By addressing current and future challenges through fundamental research, building capacity for research, and transiting research to practice, these efforts seek to improve the quality of life in communities while protecting individual security and privacy.
