Indiana University President Michael A. McRobbie announced that Lilly Endowment Inc. has awarded the university $15 million over five years to establish the Pervasive Technology Institute. The Pervasive Technology Institute will draw on the success of the IU Pervasive Technology Labs, School of Informatics, and other areas of expertise. It will expand the value of information technology in transforming scientific progress; create new ways to analyze and understand massive amounts of digital data; and perform new policy and computer science research to ensure that computer systems and networks can be used with appropriate privacy while protecting national security interests. The Pervasive Technology Institute will be made up of three research centers: The Digital Science Center, The Data to Insight Center, and The Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research.
