  • If you will forgive the water metaphor---This is our data model in most of academia. Information is impounded behind barriers and allowed to trickle out through channels creating power for us
  • This is the data model that we need to pursue.The Nile delta has thousands of connections and channels and the outcome is the cradle of civilization
  • RemarksThis how Michigan State University is approaching to complex problems and resilient communities. MSU is building a global network of partners (universities, government agencies, corporations, small & medium enterprises, foundations, non-governmental organizations) & we are connecting with our partners’ networks. We are building a network of networks. Across programs, across campuses and across communitiesBackgroundCross college, cross institutional, cross continental research & development work to bend the trends
