Integrated Research and Innovation Center

The Integrated Research and Innovation center is UI’s world-class facility for interdisciplinary research and discovery. Located in the heart of campus, it is home to projects that transcend traditional academic boundaries, allowing researchers to take on key questions in new ways. As the university’s premier research facility, the IRIC offers space for teams of faculty researchers, as well as their undergraduate and graduate students who are gaining hands-on experience. When the IRIC opened in January 2017, more than 20 teams had secured space in the building, representing every UI college.
