Today, the Alliance for Innovation and Infrastructure celebrates the seventh year since its founding. On October 21, 2014, Aii launched operations as an independent, non-partisan organization focused on researching America’s infrastructure deficiencies, creating awareness of these deficiencies, and finding solutions to critical public policy challenges. 

In the seven years since, Aii has engaged in research and educational activity from the U.S. to Europe, publishing 50 white papers and policy briefs, which have served as the basis for international conferences, working group discussions, expert panels, journal submissions, and even textbook citations. Aii has also released countless policy blogs and educational materials, offering a range of content on varying topics, catering to individuals of different ages, backgrounds, and education. 

Since its inception, Aii has also expanded its educational outreach. In addition to leading lectures at top universities, Aii provides educational graphics, games, and lesson plans for kindergarten through high school age groups, even launching a virtual classroom with a full suite of educational materials for students, teachers, and parents. 

Aii continues to be a trusted leader in the infrastructure space by leading news organizations. Our work has been featured in over 75 national news outlets, including CNN, Fox News, and the Hill. Thanks to the hard work and diligence of journalists, Aii is regularly contacted for background, opinion, analysis, and expertise. 

While Aii has much to celebrate, we continue to look to our future. Just as we are forward-looking advocates of energy and technology, we look onward to new ventures and opportunities to help us in our mission of research and education. Aii plans to publish more reports navigating complex policy issues, expand our educational outreach, and extend our scope of research to additional areas of infrastructure.

Aii has accomplished a great deal since its inception thanks to generous donors like you. To ensure that we can continue for another 7 years, consider donating to Aii.
