LANSING, Mich. (WLUC) - Accelerating the creation and transfer of new technologies from research settings to practical real-world applications is the main focus of the innovation hubs at the University of Michigan’s College of Engineering and Michigan Technological University. With the Michigan Strategic Fund (MSF) board’s approval today, the U-M advanced transportation Hub and Michigan Tech’s advanced materials Hub will receive $1.7 million and $525,000 in funding, respectively, over a two-year period to support research projects across Michigan.

“Bringing two more innovation hubs into the statewide program is an exciting next step for MTRAC as we continue to support the advancement of research and commercialization potential across Michigan,” said Denise Graves, MEDC University Relations Director. “There is great interest and attention to the advanced transportation and materials industries and to be able to support the research at universities, and now beyond, is a crucial milestone for MEDC’s support of the research community.”
