CITRIS


Return to Academic Programs Return to: Academic Programs

The Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society (CITRIS) creates information technology solutions for many of our most pressing social, environmental, and health care problems.  CITRIS was created “to shorten the pipeline” between world-class laboratory research and the creation of start-ups, large companies, and whole industries. CITRIS facilitates partnerships and collaborations among more than 300 faculty members and thousands of students from numerous departments at four University of California campuses (Berkeley, Davis, Merced, and Santa Cruz) with industrial researchers from over 60 corporations. Together, the groups are thinking about information technology in ways its never been thought of before. UC Merced’s node of CITRIS engages faculty and students in a number of research efforts that occur at Merced alone as well as with the partner campuses in CITRIS.  CITRIS investigators at UC Merced work in the areas of Energy, Democracy, Infrastructure and Health.  CITRIS is also the home of UC Merced’s Mobile App Challenge.
