PRESS RELEASE BY THE INTELLIGENT COMMUNITY FORUM
ICF Announces First International Institute in Stratford, Canada
The Intelligent Community Forum (ICF) a New York-based think tank that studies and enables the economic and social development of cities and communities worldwide, and designates the world’s 21 most Intelligent Communities each year, will announce its first international Institute for the Study of the Intelligent Community in the city of Stratford, Ontario (Canada) on December 21, 2011 in New York at an exclusive luncheon event at the Canadian Consulate of New York.
The Institute will be housed in downtown Stratford at the University of Waterloo’s Stratford campus. The Institute will study the transformation of Stratford into a digital media economy and allow community and technology leaders worldwide to visit the community to watch this transformation occur as Canada itself becomes a “digital nation” by 2017.
