THE AXIA INSTITUTE:
Delivering Value Chain Solutions®
Tackling Some of the Biggest
Business and World Challenges
The Axia Institute® is a premier research and education center dedicated to developing effective and sustainable solutions to improve public and private value chains. Established by Michigan State University in 2013, the Axia Institute partners with industry to solve grand challenges and conduct cross-disciplinary research in areas of value chain optimization, data analytics, engineering, smart packaging, anti-counterfeiting, and water and food safety.
Value Chain Approach
Value chains represent all the steps and links in a system from beginning to end. When every step and link performs at its best, the entire value chain performs at its best. Businesses and nonprofits benefit from enhanced value chain management.
The research strategy focuses on four research application areas applicable to both business and the nonprofit sector: Water Quality and Water Delivery, Food Safety and Sustainability, Global Manufacturing and Value Chain Integration.
