Through the presence of Michigan State University’s National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL), the development of the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) as well as the presence of a few acceleration centered private sector businesses located within the Lansing region, the community is quickly developing into a hub for acceleration technologies making Lansing Michigan's Accelerator Region. It is important to us to support this quickly developing industry as the need for additional specific skills sets and talent grows.
In an effort to build and support an industry surrounding these technologies, LEAP developed the Michigan Accelerator Region Strategy known as Accelerating Capital. The Accelerating Capital Strategy provides a foundation for a multi-year
effort to leverage the existing value of the NSCL and the additional
economic development opportunities presented by the FRIB.
