    Great Lakes Research Center

    If you build it, they will come. Not ballplayers per se, but major leaguers nonetheless: researchers, academics, policy wonks, and business people, all drawn by a common concern for the world’s greatest system of lakes.
    "The Great Lakes Research Center will enable all these groups to come together and work as a team on water-related activities in the broadest sense," says Guy Meadows, director of Great Lakes initiatives. "The work done here will be all encompassing and highly interdisciplinary, ranging from sustainability issues to the economy of the upper Great Lakes region."
