Smart Infrastructure Institute

Companies and institutions have a hidden secret. They are leading a Revolution in our Infrastructure. We want to help expose that secret to the world.

Tomorrow’s infrastructure will blend traditional physical-infrastructure (transportation and transit systems, buildings, pipes, power grid, concrete and steel) with cyber-infrastructure (computers, networks and sensors) in ways that are just emerging. A wealth of companies, universities and institutions exist that are inventing many of these emerging technologies that will build or rebuild the world’s transportation, civil, manufacturing and other infrastructure. We will bring those organizations together to leverage and highlight this hidden secret.

These technologies will also need a new generation of employees to design, operate and maintain these new cyber-physical infrastructure systems. The SII would be an important step toward exposing this secret.
