The CUSP Network
The CUSP Network is a cohort of professionals who partner with CUSP to open lines of communication across urban sectors, to collaborate cross-functionally on important research, to inform the direction of the center, and ultimately to contribute to the improvement of cities around the world.
The CUSP Network aims to bring together academic researchers, industry and government professionals to work together in developing technological solutions for today’s urban challenges.
CUSP is a highly interdisciplinary research center created with the purpose of bringing data science perspectives to the forefront of city management. By studying urban environments, infrastructures, healthcare systems and more, CUSP uses varying methodologies to collect, analyze, and extrapolate insights from data sets in a way that can inform and improve upon city services in NYC and across the globe.
The percentage of people choosing to live in cities is continually growing. The last few years have shown how extensive challenges can arise when our typical way of life is subjected to major disruption. CUSP exists to make cities stronger, more resilient, and more equitable. As more and more people live in urban spaces, we can work to ensure a better quality of life, as well as a more stable one, as we consider the challenges the next 50 years will bring.
