The Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology (ICAT) seeks proposals that bring together scientists, engineers, artists, and designers to tackle some of the world’s most complex challenges.

Powered by advanced technology and networks of talented and creative people, ICAT supports teams of faculty and students from across the university to address particular needs, ranging from large societal problems to industry-specific challenges. ICAT studies process, including education; arts and design integration; and the translation of research into practice.

ICAT invites collaborative proposals that include creative projects, pilot and/or feasibility studies, or preliminary research. Funded projects will advance our goal of addressing complex challenges through networks of people and advanced technology.
