The Center for Infrastructure Renewal (CIR) recently launched two new avenues for information and news about the CIR. The CIR Now is the quarterly newsletter devoted to the news, information and activities of the Center for Infrastructure Renewal (CIR). Each edition of The CIR Now will include stories and photos about the CIR and its labs, research, personnel, successes, impact, awards, etc.
“We are very excited about The CIR Now newsletter that will chronicle the activities of the CIR, a leading source for the development of transformative infrastructure solutions,” said John Barton, Assistant Vice Chancellor Texas A&M University System, RELLIS Director and CIR Executive Director.
The CIR will feature 13 labs focusing on research, innovation and workforce development to create these solutions in nine critical areas of infrastructure: chemical; communications; critical manufacturing; smart energy; information technology; nuclear reactors, materials and waste; transportation systems; water and wastewater systems; and healthcare and public health.
In addition, the CIR also has a new website! Located at https://cir.tamu.edu, the website features a complete overview of the CIR; its vision, mission and priorities; research; labs; people; etc.
The website also features the opportunity to subscribe to this newsletter, The CIR Now, and to register for any short courses and workshops being led by CIR. Currently, a CIR short course entitled Computational Analysis and Design of Flexible Pavement is being offered April 18-19 at the Mays Business School at CityCentre in Houston.
