Research Technologies

Benefiting the entire IU community

Indiana University is enabling new types of research, pedagogy, creative activity, and community impact by implementing and supporting one of the world's foremost university research cyberinfrastructures.

This cyberinfrastructure (CI):

  • Combines deep human expertise; world-class supercomputer, storage, and visualization systems; and computer science and informatics tools
  • Addresses the needs of researchers, artists, scholars, clinicians, and engineers
  • Enables new capabilities at IU and at the state, national, and international levels

Embodying a philosophy of abundance, CI access is provided without charge to members of the university community.

The majority of RT services are baseline, made possible by IU general funds and student technology fees. However, RT offers a number of cost recovery services for purchase with departmental, grant, or startup funds. This allows RT to do more for the IU community, since external funds expand what RT can do beyond its own budget.
