Michigan’s University Research Corridor (URC) embarked on a six-stop Infrastructure Innovation Tour over nine months in 2018 and 2019 for the purpose of generating conversations about infrastructure needs, promote innovation, and foster future collaboration. The issues were identified in the report Foundation for the Future: URC Contributions to Infrastructure Improvement presented by the URC in spring 2018. Expert teams gathered at each tour stop to discuss issues and opportunities related to infrastructure challenges in water, mobility, energy, and communications.
The tour culminates in a tour wrap-up event in Detroit that shares tour highlights, themes common across Michigan, and potential implications for other communities facing similar infrastructure concerns.
