Center Overview

The Center is an effort to bring to bear the explosion of information technology-related discoveries and apply them in a focused manner to the discovery and learning processes.

In addition, the Cyber Center provides a venue for all IT-related research, hardware, software, and staffing to come together in a single venue allowing new discoveries that can have immediate impact on discovery, learning, and engagement.

The Cyber Center places Purdue in a competitive advantage by accelerating discovery which leads to new avenues of research both in IT and in disciplines that have not yet realized the full potential for cyber infrastructure supported research.

The Center institutionalizes an integrated cyber infrastructure that benefits basic research across the campus. The co-location and shared research objectives are powerful drivers in the development new technology, new discoveries, and new businesses. This facilitates start-up businesses, new jobs, and economic development for the State of Indiana.

Mission

Vision

The Cyber Center's vision is to create an interdisciplinary facility of national prominence that will:
  • Engage in basic CI research
  • Develop new CI tools and techniques
  • Deploy results to real communities meeting real user needs at Purdue and beyond
