Center for the Integration of Composites into Infrastructure
It is a National Science Foundation (NSF) Industry/University
Cooperative Research Center which began operations in July 2009. The
primary objective of the center is to usher applications of
composites in civil and military infrastructures to the next level
through collaborative efforts between West Virginia University,
North Carolina State University, the University of Miami and the
University of Texas at Arlington, Texas. The focus areas will
synergize different fibers and polymers to create new application
areas; thus expanding market potential.
The mission of CICI is to accelerate the adoption of polymer
composites and innovated construction material into infrastructure
and transportation applications through collaborative research.
