• NITRD Coordination Areas

    The Networking and Information Technology Research and Development (NITRD) Program's member agencies coordinate their NITRD research activities and plans by Program Component Areas (PCAs) or program focus areas. For each PCA, agency representatives meet in an Interagency Working Group (IWG) to exchange information and collaborate on research plans and activities such as testbeds, workshops, and cooperative solicitations.

Overview

The Smart Cities and Communities Task Force is a body under the NITRD Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) Interagency Working Group (IWG). The CPS IWG’s purpose is to coordinate programs, budgets, and policy recommendations for CPS R&D across the Federal government. This includes identifying and integrating requirements, facilitating joint program planning, and developing joint strategies for the CPS R&D programs conducted by agency members of the NITRD Subcommittee and CPS IWG. Specifically, the Smart Cities and Communities Task Force coordinates Federal action and partnerships with academia, industry, local cities and communities, and other government entities to enable cities/communities of all types in accessing networking and information technologies and services.

The Federal Smart Cities and Communities Task Force created the “Federal Smart Cities and Communities Programs Resource Guide” to facilitate collaboration and coordination between Smart Cities and Communities (SCC) Task Force member agencies, academia, industry, local cities and communities, and other government entities. The Resource Guide describes Federally-funded research and development (R&D) programs in smart cities and communities. These R&D programs seek to embed new digital technologies into city/community infrastructure, systems, and services.
