The Stuff You Don’t Think About

Technologically Speaking Podcast: Season 3, Episode 4. S&T Division Director for Infrastructure and Security Solutions, Brannan Villee, talks about the crucial role S&T plays in protecting our critical infrastructure. Critical infrastructure is a lot more than just bridges and dams, it also includes the power grid, the water we drink, our access to 911 in an emergency, and even the internet itself. As the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law hits its two-year anniversary, Brannan talks about how this historic funding has helped shape and support the Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience Research Program, the single largest appropriation that S&T has ever received for one program.
