Interdisciplinary Centers

Georgia Tech is home to more than 200 research centers and laboratories – an integral part of the Institute’s entrepreneurial culture.

Among these units are a number of large Interdisciplinary Research Institutes (IRI), including the Georgia Tech Research Institute, which report directly to the Executive Vice President for Research. Each IRI brings together a mix of researchers—spanning all Georgia Tech colleges, departments, and individual labs—
around a single core research area. The IRIs exist to create transformative opportunities, strengthen collaborative partnerships, and maximize the societal impact of the exciting research being done at Georgia Tech.

Both government and industry work with Tech’s IRIs to connect with a large portfolio of basic and applied research programs, to create and use novel research laboratories, to interact with Georgia Tech students, and to collaborate with other research partners.

To learn more about the individual center listed below, please visit the website for their home college or campus unit. To learn more about the newest Interdisciplinary Research Institutes that are on the horizon, and will be added to this website when launched, please visit http://www.research.gatech.edu/about/supporting-units.
