UT Pop-Up Institutes

The Office of the Vice President for Research offers an opportunity for “Pop-Up Institutes” to operate on the UT Austin campus during summer. The Institutes provide a research format intermediate in both scale and cost between short conferences and permanent organized research structures. The UT Pop-Up Institutes are organized around interdisciplinary teams that work together for about one month toward a common research-related goal, in a common physical space, and they produce a research product based on in-depth preparation for a larger future initiative, collaborative work to carry out a defined investigation, or an effort to bring a single or group of partially completed projects to a successful conclusion.
