Date: 5/10/2012
Time: 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM

SLS Hotel
465 South La Cienega Boulevard

Please join us for a reception and discussion of NYU’s leadership in science and innovation with
Jerry Hultin, President, Polytechnic Institute of NYU.

The Center for Urban Science and Progress (CUSP) is an applied science research institute that is being created by New York University and NYU-Poly with a consortium of world-class universities and the foremost international tech companies to address the needs of cities.

For the first time in history, more than half of the world’s population lives in urban areas; in just a few more decades, the world's population will exceed 9 billion, 70 percent of whom will live in cities. Enabling those cities to deliver services effectively, efficiently, and sustainably while keeping their citizens safe, healthy, prosperous, and well-informed will be among the most important undertakings in this century.

CUSP will tackle these urban challenges and set the research agenda on the science of cities, educating the next generation of engineers in how to apply that research, bringing innovative ideas to a world market, and creating a new, fast-growing, and indispensible industry—along with the many jobs that go with it.
