The Mission of IIAM is to foster the development of technology and services innovations that lead to more effective solutions to infrastructure problems for 21st-century cities. Our education, training, and technology transfer program objectives include facilitating the exchange of new ideas and business resources across globally diverse regions; and applying new tools to improve the effective assessment and diagnosis of infrastructure performance. Through our international conference initiatives, our objective is to convene leading expertise to generate discourse and influence infrastructure technology policy in cities around the world.
The Institute was formed in 1998 as an outgrowth of academic research and technology development activities. Several practical-minded faculty members of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute teamed up with industrial leaders and former government personnel to create a new, unique entity to serve the energy, transportation and infrastructure industries. IIAM has proven to be a flexible, capable organization with a consistent record of successful service. From the time of its formation, IIAM initiatives have covered many areas of activities across the US and globally.
IIAM personnel has extensive experience in classroom and distance learning training as well as in the daily operations and management of deployed technologies. IIAM has an extensive number of affiliates with whom it collaborates on many areas of endeavor, including the important fields of finance and budgeting, capital programming, scheduling and planning, and other pertinent areas. We understand well the important role of government decision making and policies, the need for effective communication among diverse groups, and leadership in addressing important problems of our society.
