Name:Center for Urban Science and Progress
The Center for Urban Science and Progress (CUSP) is a unique public-private research center that uses New York City as its
laboratory and classroom to help cities around the world become more productive, livable, equitable, and resilient. CUSP observes,
analyzes, and models cities to optimize outcomes, prototype new solutions, formalize new tools and processes, and develop
new expertise/experts. These activities will make CUSP the world's leading authority in the emerging field of "Urban Informatics."
- New York City
- New York University: CUSP was created by New York University, NYU‑Poly, a consortium of world-class universities, and prominent international tech
companies as a response to a challenge put forth by New York City to create an applied science campus that will make the city
a world capital of science and technology, and dramatically grow its economy.
