Infrastructure Innovation Tour Resources

Thank you for joining us on an Infrastructure Innovation tour of the state of Michigan.
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.

Expert teams visited six Michigan communities to discuss issues and opportunities related to infrastructure and its role in daily life. Below are a list of frequently-updated resources related to the Infrastructure Innovation Tour:
