The vision for the Brook Byers Institute for Sustainable Systems is to create knowledge and technologies that will improve environmental, social, and economic outcomes. The BBISS's approach is to holistically integrate the disciplines of science, engineering, social science, policy, planning, design and business into the institute’s work. While its interests span across a wide range of research problems, the BBISS is particularly focused on the emerging science of Gigatechnology. Gigatechnologies are the largest engineered systems that humans create: infrastructure, such as transportation networks, energy grids, water, sewer, and storm water systems, and food production and distribution systems.
