ICS@PSU: Institute for CyberScience

Mission and Vision

Our Mission

The mission of the Institute for CyberScience is to build capacity to solve problems of scientific and societal importance through cyber-enabled research. As computation and data science become increasingly vital modes of inquiry, we enable researchers to develop innovative computational methods and to apply those methods to research challenges. Specifically, we:

  • foster a collaborative, interdisciplinary scholarly community focused on the development and application of innovative computational methods;
  • expand participation in interdisciplinary research through strategic investments and effective outreach; and
  • provide a vibrant world-class cyberinfrastructure by maintaining and continually improving hardware and software solutions and technical expertise.

Our Vision

ICS will expand its role as an international leader in advancing cyberinfrastructure along with computational and data-driven methods and in driving their application to interdisciplinary research. We will use our expertise coupled with our state-of-the-science research infrastructure to support cyber-enabled interdisciplinary collaborations and attract the world’s best researchers. These researchers will form a vibrant intellectual community empowered to use the latest and most effective computational methods to make transformative discoveries for science and society.
