Project summary:

The Great Lakes Maritime Research Institute (GLMRI) was established to pursue research efforts in marine transportation, logistics, economics, engineering, environmental planning, and port management. The consortium can also draw on expertise in a wide range of other areas through affiliations with other "Great Lake" universities. In the initial year of funded support, the organization looked to establish formal affiliations, set up an external advisory board, develop a prioritized research focus, and provide preliminary reports on the initial research agenda.
