The University of Chicago and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are launching a partnership dedicated to research and technology development for some of society’s most pressing challenges.  The partnership will bring about 100 faculty, researchers and students from Urbana-Champaign to collaborate with UChicago colleagues, entrepreneurs and industry leaders, and will be based at the University of Chicago’s Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation complex on Chicago’s South Side. In addition, the U.S. Army Research Laboratory announced Oct. 18 that it plans to establish its central states location for research and technology at the Polsky Center.

Two areas of focus for the partnership will be advanced analytics and advanced materials, bringing together key strengths of each institution. The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has one of the world’s fastest supercomputers, top-ranked computer science and information sciences programs, as well as a leading materials science and engineering program. The University of Chicago, with its Institute for Molecular Engineering and in collaboration with affiliated Argonne National Laboratory, is a leader in high-performance computing and home to ambitious new initiatives in computer science, data science and materials science. The work in technology and startup businesses will contribute to key industries, including smart infrastructure, transportation, energy, health care and manufacturing.
