Global City Teams Challenge (GCTC) logo

Internet of Things (IoT) and Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) involve connecting smart devices and systems—in diverse sectors such as transportation, energy, manufacturing, and healthcare—in fundamentally new ways. These technologies will enable cities and communities to improve services, promote economic growth, and enhance the quality of life. Many of today's smart city/community development efforts are isolated and customized projects, so NIST launched the Global City Teams Challenge (GCTC) to encourage collaboration and the development of standards. GCTC will help communities benefit from the experience of others to improve efficiency and lower costs. The GCTC program enables local governments, nonprofit organizations, academic institutions, technologists, and private corporations from all over the world to form project teams, or “action clusters,” and “SuperClusters,” to work on groundbreaking Internet of Things (IoT) applications within the smart city and community environment.
