IBM has just named 33 cities worldwide to receive the IBM Smarter Cities Challenge grants for 2012.
Launched in 2011, this three-year, 100-city US$50 million program, IBM’s single-largest philanthropic initiative, funds in-person engagements staffed by teams of top IBM experts, who study and then make detailed recommendations addressing locally important urban issues.
The initiatives include:
- Economic and Workforce Development
- Urban Planning
