GLG water research included in University ResearchCorridor report

Dr. Bruno Basso's research was featured in the recent report of the

Michigan State University and its University Research Corridor partners protect Michigan’s precious water resources and enhance its “blue economy” through hundreds of millions of dollars in research and service, a new report shows.

The URC universities – MSU, the University of Michigan and Wayne State University – landed nearly $300 million in funding for water-related research and outreach from 2009 to 2013. The 2,100 awards led to innovations in a wide variety of areas, ranging from invasive species to monitoring water quality and finding ways to optimize water use in agriculture, according to “Innovating for the Blue Economy,” a report released today at the Detroit Regional Chamber’s Mackinac Policy Conference.
