Imagine a city where all the major elements of the infrastructure - transportation, utilities, technology - operate according to a "Smart" plan, an integrated approach that conserves resources, accommodates growth and optimizes lifestyles. Now consider how you would train today's college students to develop those smart plans for the cities of the future - plans that draw ideas from business, science, IT technology and the liberal arts. A team of University of Notre Dame business professors recently won an IBM Smarter Planet Faculty Innovation Award with their proposal, "Foresight for a Smarter Planet: Toward the City Sustainable."
