Help Create a Smarter Georgia Through Community Research Projects.

The Partnership for Inclusive Innovation supports community research across the State of Georgia by engaging a network of researchers, community leaders, and key stakeholders to advance local initiatives for innovation. Many of the projects are supported through Community Research, a program that provides community research assistance to empower municipalities to utilize technology and data to pursue a “smart” future. The Partnership also accepts proposals for applied community research funding to foster impact in a variety of regions and disciplines.
