Digital City Testbed Center
The Digital City Testbed Center at Portland State University establishes a network of campuses in the Pacific Northwest where smart city technologies can be tested before being deployed in communities at large.

The Digital City Testbed Center (DCTC) focuses on how technology can help make cities "smarter" by improving operational efficiency, environmental sustainability, public health, social well-being, economic viability, and accessibility. DCTC will carry out critical social science, economic and ecological assessments that incorporate behavioral responses, user-friendly design, community feedback and cost-benefit analyses to help our municipal, corporate and non-profit partners decide how vigorously to embrace proposed solutions.
