Cornell University Cornell Brooks Public Policy

Cornell Program in Infrastructure Policy

Educating the next generation of infrastructure leaders

The Cornell Program in Infrastructure Policy (CPIP) in the Cornell Jeb E. Brooks School of Public Policy is focused on improving the delivery, maintenance, and operation of physical infrastructure. This is accomplished through dedicated teaching, research, and outreach efforts in infrastructure policy. A key focus is on infrastructure funding and financing. CPIP coordinates scholars across multiple disciplines both inside and outside of Cornell University who share an interest in public policies impacting infrastructure. CPIP develops and disseminates research relevant to those policies. CPIP collaborates with partners in the public, private, and non-profit sectors to achieve those goals.

  • Educate the next generation of infrastructure leaders and professionals at both the undergraduate and graduate levels
  • Coordinate an active global network of researchers in infrastructure policy
  • Disseminate research findings through conferences policy briefs, media availability, and other on-line outreach efforts
  • Maintain a web presence dedicated to global infrastructure policy issues

Upcoming Workshop: July 11-14 

“Funding, Financing & Emerging Technologies in Infrastructure to Improve Resilience, Sustainability and Universal Access”

The Infrastructure 2.0 Project will focus on developing public policies to support infrastructure that is sustainable in its financing, use, and maintenance. Innovative public policies, including new funding and financing approaches such as tolling and public private partnerships, can help address those concerns. The Infrastructure 2.0 Project will assess those and other innovative policies to improve the sustainability of America’s infrastructure.
