Energizing Communities

MiVTTP (Michigan Vehicle Technology Transition Impact Project) conducts listening sessions to gather information to help local workers and economies adapt to the automotive industry’s transition to electric vehicles. The insights gained will be used to develop strategies for inclusive economic growth in underrepresented Michigan communities, helping them take advantage of new opportunities.

The Economic Growth Institute at the University of Michigan is an outward facing group that has been part of the university for more than 40 years. Every day we work toward equitable economic growth for local, state, and national economies by working with small- and medium-sized enterprises and communities.
