d3latest_-1024x463You don’t have to be a genius or nuclear scientist to benefit from the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams at Michigan State University. The FRIB is currently the largest construction project in Michigan, and it’s providing a wealth of business opportunities in the region, as well as a whopping return on investment.

You’ll want to be on hand to hear Tom Nowak, business opportunity and procurement manager of the FRIB, speak at Tuesday’s Good Morning Livingston program, set for 7:30 a.m. at The Johnson Center at Cleary University, 3750 Cleary Drive in Howell. The massive economic aftershock of the FRIB affects us all, and there are lots of opportunities for all sorts of businesses, from materials suppliers to real estate firms to restaurants and hotels.

The FRIB is the first facility of its kind in the world, and it will allow researchers to pursue scientific breakthroughs by creating and studying elements that do not normally occur naturally on Earth. Studying these rare materials, which often exist for only a fraction of a second, can help scientists advance scientific research in many fields, including how to use isotopes to improve medical imaging and the treatment of cancer.

The $730 million project will add more than $1 billion to Michigan’s economy, create nearly 6,000 high-tech and construction jobs, attract more than 800 visiting scientists from around the world, AND generate $187 million in new tax revenues for the state.
