About Smart Cities MIAMI
To aid in the design and development of more sustainable, livable, and resilient cities, the University of Miami brings cutting-edge research in urban planning, architecture, and engineering in alignment with computational resources and analytical methods. The annual Smart Cities MIAMI Conference is an extension of these efforts, providing a forum for leaders in academia, industry, and government to closely examine evolving theories and practices in the Smart City field. The topics considered vary in scope and nature within a general theme that is particularly relevant for each year. This annual conference is held at the University of Miami Coral Gables campus at the Jorge M. Perez Architecture Center, and is co-hosted by the School of Architecture and the Institute for Data Science and Computing (IDSC).
About The Climate Resilience Academy
Launched on Earth Day, April 25, 2022, the Climate Resilience Academy constructs a novel, functional, academic framework that is collaborative at its core and highlights the University as a loadstar for leading positive hemispheric and global change. As a functional research and coordinating hub, the Academy supports interdisciplinary problem-driven research and education to train the next generation and deliver solutions to climate change impacts and environmental stressors, in partnership with industry, government, universities, and other stakeholders. As one of the nation’s top research institutions located in a community considered “ground zero” for experiencing serious impacts from climate change, especially in the area of sea level rise, the University of Miami is uniquely positioned to be a driver for solutions that will benefit society. The formation of the new academy was propelled to fruition through a gift of $5 million dollars by businessman and philanthropist Eric T. Levin to establish the Eric T. Levin Endowed Chair in Climate Resilience. The gift is part of the University’s fundraising campaign, Ever Brighter: The Campaign for Our Next Century. The most ambitious in the U’s history, the campaign is set to conclude in 2025 when the University celebrates its centennial.
