The #SMARTer Together webinar series aims to challenge us beyond the immediate crisis and onto a newer state where we have another chance to build strong community-research partnerships for good. By focusing on complex, societal problems that communities all over GA and the rest of the world face, we aim to provide innovative research and create partnerships to empower all. We adhere to GT’s Strategic Plan and Mission on “developing leaders who advance technology and improve the human condition.”

Let's all be #SMARTer Together.

The presenter is well-versed in the activities of the private sector and government related to these two overlapping fields.
