Integrated Research and Innovation Center (IRIC)

The Integrated Research and Innovation center is UI’s world-class facility for interdisciplinary research and discovery. Located in the heart of campus, it is home to projects that transcend traditional academic boundaries, allowing researchers to take on key questions in new ways.

As the university’s premier research facility, the IRIC offers space for teams of faculty researchers, as well as their undergraduate and graduate students who are gaining hands-on experience. When the IRIC opened in January 2017, more than 20 teams had secured space in the building, representing every UI college.

The IRIC Facility Committee reviews applications for space and helps determine the location and length of projects. Teams will rotate in and out of the IRIC based on the lifespan of their project: Short-term projects may only use space for a few months, while other projects could spend years establishing and expanding their work.

The IRIC features flexible laboratories, office and collaboration spaces that can be customized to fit the needs of their occupants. The building also includes core research facilities available to researchers across campus, as well as outside partnership; a state-of-the-art visualization laboratory; indoor and outdoor auditoriums; and space for events.

The IRIC stands as evidence of the university’s commitment to interdisciplinary research that makes a difference to our students, our state and our world.
