Harvard TECH CIO Summit, Boston

Jan 12 - Jan 14, 2020

The Smart Cities CIO Summit is an invitation-only program for senior-most executives in the public sector, technology, start-up communities, and higher education. This event will be held in Boston, MA on the grounds of Harvard University on January 13 & 14, 2020.

The Smart Cities Innovation Accelerators are co-developed by the Fellows from the Technology and Entrepreneurship Center at Harvard along with city leaders and industry expert partners. During the event, you can expect to engage in informative case studies, peer-to-peer problem-solving sessions, hands-on and topical workshops & exercises designed to help you evaluate your current state and develop a plan to make your community an innovation leader for the future.

Our annual CIO/Smart City Leader summit brings together the top leaders in cities across the globe to discuss the key issues, ideas, and opportunities for 2020. Building on our work from 2019, we covered five main topic areas at our summit:
