Recent Initiatives

Integrative Data Science Initiative

The Integrative Data Science Initiative will push the frontiers of scientific discovery well beyond current confines. We will be a national leader in applying Data Science to solve large and pressing problems ranging from food insecurity to disease. The “Embedding Data Science into Domain Curricula” program will also serve as a new model for other universities seeking to implement a comprehensive educational Data Science initiative. Data Science thrives when collaboration is fully engaged and, with this proposed Initiative, we are fully engaging the power of Purdue.

Defense Innovation

Purdue is advancing a broad defense innovation capability, distinguished by its depth, breadth, and speed, with the goal of contributing to our nation’s third offset strategy of innovation by integration of existing strengths and forming new partnerships.

Collaboration Express

Collaboration Express is an initiative from Purdue University with two parallel aims: to accelerate Indiana’s capacity for attracting and expanding high‐technology job opportunities among new ventures as well as second‐stage (and larger) employers, and to empower Indiana citizens to more effectively plan an educational pathway and connect with Indiana employers for a high-tech career.
