Member organisations of the PLuS Alliance, including UNSW Sydney, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Pune Smart City Development Corporation, Limited (PSCDCL), to advance research, education and outreach projects that address pressing urbanisation challenges in one of the largest cities in India.
“Collaboration is key if we are to find effective solutions to the challenges of rapid urbanisation – and to the sustainable and inclusive development Pune Smart City Development Corporation aspires to,” Professor Jacobs said. “The PLuS Alliance is a rich source of the knowledge and the innovative thought that will be a powerful driver of these projects.”
Under the agreement, the PluS Alliance and PSCDCL will collaborate on activities including identifying specific research projects for future collaborations, designing networking events and education programs and securing business, government and industry sponsors on projects.
