The Boston Project Center

The Boston Project Center brings students and faculty from WPI together with partners from government agencies, non-governmental organizations, businesses, and academic institutions in the Boston metropolitan area to collaborate on issues related to sustainability and climate change, the environment, and public health and safety. By addressing the technical and social (e.g. policy, financial, or educational) aspects of these issues, students help their partners develop solutions that are relevant and useful.
