PURPOSE AND SCOPE
 

The Institute is unique among many policy organizations. It is a scientific and engineering organization with the defined purpose of analyzing, educating and advocating. To this end, it intends studying both immediate and longer-term policy issues relating to infrastructure policy, delivery, operation and maintenance.

Our core value is to be objective in examining issues based on sound science, engineering and technological analysis.

The Institute shall bring together a diverse range of perspectives and create real partnerships across sectors and disciplines. Almost all of the issues to be studied will involve disciplines such as economics; engineering; environmental and social science; leading to research that will be inherently interdisciplinary.
