Infrastructure Innovation Tour

Infrastructure is the foundation of our economy and of modern society, but it is often taken for granted until it fails to work. Michigan and the nation made big investments in infrastructure in the 20th century, which are starting to show their age and are overdue for improvement.

During the past five years, URC institutions conducted $1.64B in infrastructure-related research and initiatives in the fields of water, mobility, energy and communications. R&D efforts that spanned more than one of those categories equaled $274M.

 

These contributions to infrastructure innovations and talent continue to reshape how people and business interact with their built and digital environments.
