What is the Global Institute for the Study of the Intelligent Community?

The Global Institute for the Study of the Intelligent Community was established in partnership with the Intelligent Community Forum (ICF) to serve as a research institution to expand the world’s knowledge about the creation of Intelligent Communities. Through the Institute and our membership, we seek to expand understanding of successful community development and to equip local leaders with tools to build stronger communities.

The Institute is currently one of two such organizations licensed through ICF. Each Institute focuses on educating and assisting communities in becoming proficient in the Intelligent Community Indicators – broadband, knowledge workforce, innovation, digital equality, sustainability, and advocacy.
