About the Seminar

February 12, 2015 8:30am—10:30am

There are almost 90,000 units of local government in the United States. There is an extraordinary level of innovations unfolding in cities and counties, but little systematic analysis of these innovations to facilitate exporting to other jurisdictions. The Center for Urban Innovation and the ASU Decision Theater are engaged in a series of projects designed to develop and evaluate innovative practices. CUI and the DT disseminate effective practices to public decision makers in a manner that allows them to improve the quality of governance and service delivery for their citizens. CUI and the DT will highlight a range of their recent projects that address such issues as “big data,” public financing of infrastructure, and collaborative service delivery mechanisms such as public-private partnerships.
