Global City Teams Challenge (GCTC)

Visible to the public 

The Global Cities Team Challenge (GCTC) was launched by NIST in 2014 to encourage collaboration among those building smart city/community solutions. The challenge's long-term goal is "to establish and demonstrate replicable, scalable, and sustainable models for incubation and deployment of interoperable, standard-based solutions using advanced technologies such as IoT and CPS, and demonstrate their measurable benefits in communities and cities."
