The projected outcomes of the SMART project are three-fold. First, for each region, the project aims to catalyze a diverse partnership base required to collectively describe, develop, and apply the integrated solutions and directions needed. This partnership base includes and connects thought leaders, decision makers, and practitioners from business (large and small, local and multi-national), government (at all levels and from all relevant departments), civil society, NGOs and academia.
Second, the research efforts aim to uncover new data and conceptual frameworks: technical, behavioral, economic and policy-focused. Third, the project aims to catalyze selected pilots, including innovations, enhancements, and communications approaches that will improve transportation connectivity and sustainability in Beijing, Detroit and beyond.
