The Future City Innovation Connector (FCIC) has been established within the MIT China Future City Lab. Professor Siqi Zheng serves as founder and faculty director of this lab, as well as the Samuel Tak Lee Assoc. Professor of Real Estate Development and Entrepreneurship, in MIT’s DUSP and CRE.
The program will run in conjunction with the MIT School of Architecture and Planning’s entrepreneurship accelerator, DesignX. FCIC will also work extensively with Chinese municipal governments and industry leaders to support research and startup teams.
FCIC is the first program of its kind that explicitly aims to apply the frontiers of urban research and technology to the immense urbanization occuring in China, which should be powered by technological innovation and new business ventures, FCIC leaders believe.
