NSF Invests in Sustainability Research Network

Chicago cityscapeThe National Science Foundation has put $12 million into a four-year research project with the goal to help build sustainable cities.

Georgia Tech said Wednesday that it will serve as the anchor of scientists from nine universities who will collaborate with infrastructure groups, public policy experts and industry partners to develop concepts for sustainable urban areas.

The University of Minnesota will lead the network with civil and environmental engineering professor Ted Russell as a co-director.

“We are getting the engineering community, the health community, the atmospheric sciences community, the economics communities, the policy communities in the same virtual room to look to the future,” Russell said.

The network will test those concepts on cities in the U.S. and in India.
