Innovation Center


The Innovation Center’s mission is to create a culture of innovation that promotes a transdisciplinary intellectual and creative practice and a launchpad for new ventures with frontier technologies like Quantum Computing, Artificial Intelligence(AI), Blockchain, and Extended Reality (XR). Through programs anchored in design, social research, performing arts, and technology we empower entrepreneurial efforts to create new solutions and make a positive impact in the world.

The Center creates an innovation ecosystem that brings together faculty, students, industry and corporate partners, startups, cultural organizations, and policymakers to develop prototypes, applications, exhibitions, and performances. We encourage purposeful exploration and collaboration through academic programs, design jams and hackathons, public events, and publications. We explore the convergence of technologies, user-centric design, and ethical considerations to create insights, future narratives and deliver products and experiences.
