CTG Releases Findings on the Benefits of Air Quality Information

CTG has released findings from a study assessing the potential socio-economic and financial benefits of enhanced air quality data. The study was sponsored by NASA Applied Sciences and conducted through a partnership with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), CTG, and Sonoma Technology (STI). The study provides better understanding of the benefits provided by current air quality data and data products from EPA’s AirNow program and how enhancing AirNow with NASA satellite data might contribute to different or greater benefits in the future.

An Open NY Envisioning Workshop

In celebration of Sunshine Week, CTG, in partnership with the State of New York, recently led a collaborative workshop entitled, Shaping Open NY: Visioning a New Transparency Hub. The goal of the workshop was to develop strategies to take the State’s Open NY program to the next level. The workshop also coincided with CTG’s celebration of 20 years as a research center at the University at Albany. In 1993, CTG was charged by then NY Governor Mario Cuomo to “pursue new ways of applying technologies directly to the practical problems of information management and service delivery in the public sector.” CTG, now in partnership with Governor Andrew Cuomo and his open government team, continues to meet this charge by bringing cutting edge research and practice insights to the Open NY program.
