Workshop Description: 

Creating a Model for Resilience: An update on the City of Newport's Smart Cities Initiative

How can we take a city or town requirement for developing a resilience strategy and leverage that to become an engine for growth? Digital ecosystems, innovation centers and Community Anchor Institutions have an opportunity to redefine resilience far beyond the traditional disaster recovery response methods.  In partnership with OSHEAN and CISCO, this session will focus on the City of Newport’s model for resilience and sustainable development that creates value from innovation, engagement, and investments in next generation broadband and the internet of things.
