Research innovation for a more sustainable and resilient future

Center for Innovation in Sustainability & Resilience

Working across departments and disciplines, the Center for Innovation in Sustainability & Resilience (CISR, pronounced scissor) at Michigan Tech supports development of next-generation technologies and facilitates collaboration with partners, co-creating research and knowledge in ways that serve the stakeholders and communities we engage with through our work.

The CISR is a collaborative Center established through a partnership among the Great Lakes Research Center, the Ecosystem Science Center, and the Tech Forward Initiative on Sustainability & Resilience. CISR works closely with these groups and with the Office of Sustainability & Resilience to grow Michigan Tech’s research leadership in the domains of sustainability & resilience innovations.
