Announcing the Intel Collaborative Research Institute for Sustainable Cities | Research@Intel
"At this London-based institute; Intel principal investigators (PI’s) shall collaborate with PI’s from  Imperial College London and University College London to drive new frontiers in the application of computing technologies to advance the social, economic and environmental well being of cities. Together we envisage the opportunity to collectively research and create the evolutionary leap for cities in terms of resource efficiency, new services and ease of living. Using a quadruple helix innovation approach involving Government, Industry, Academia and city dwellers we hope to catalyze and drive a new vision for sustainable cities."
