Office of the VP for Research Pop-Up Institutes
Pop-Up Institutes are a Vice President for Research initiative that supports interdisciplinary teams of UT Austin researchers. Each team spends the academic year preparing for a burst of activity focused on a specific area of research. Their Institute then ‘pops up’ for one summer month, providing dedicated resources, time and space for researchers across campus to combine their unique perspectives and distinct skill sets in pursuit of a common goal.
