The institute is conceived as an aggregator and facilitator of transdisciplinary research and education across multiple disciplines driving the future of our cities and communities. Supported by data and smart technologies, Smart Cities is an emerging paradigm in the development of urban environments in an attempt to build more efficient, healthier and livable cities.

Center for Population Health (formerly 1889 Jefferson Center for Population Health)

The 1889 Jefferson Center for Population Health was founded as a collaborative research and resource Center focused on population health and disease prevention to benefit the citizens living in Cambria and Somerset Counties. The 1889 Foundation made a major gift to the College of Population Health of Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia to establish the Center.  In early 2023, the College worked with the 1889 Foundation to spinoff the Center into a standalone non-profit organization.  Starting July 2023, the Center will operate as an independent entity, but the College remains committed and supportive of its success.
