M-LAB is M-Group's Research & Innovation arm.
M-LAB is committed to sharing new approaches and solutions to issues facing California cities, residents and environment.
Local governments are facing an unprecedented period of change as they grapple with shrinking revenues and expanded demand for services.
Local governments must have access to a steady supply of ideas and innovations as they strive to provide for a rapidly increasing population. New technologies must be adapted to the cause of improving the lives of all residents. Research and modelling will allow M-LAB to increase the rate that innovation reaches our communities and change how we plan for the future.
M-LAB is currently in the formative stages and is open to collaboration with anyone or any group that shares a passion for improving our communities and environment for all residents.
We are focused on:
Fostering original real-world research and observation;
Developing new ways to solve problems in our communities;
Reaching out to the next generation.
M-LAB is devoted to becoming a leading source for these ideas as a think tank for cities.
