Innovation through Institutional Integration (I-Cubed or I3) is a National Science Foundation (NSF) award program. I3 challenges faculty, administrators and project partners to think strategically about the creative integration of NSF-funded awards to provide students with an interdisciplinary, cross-curriculum, technologically current approach to laboratory science.
The catalyst for institutional integration is the City Tech I3 incubator. The I3 incubator is a model that will serve to advance three critical NSF I3 themes: broadening participation, integrating research and education and developing a global workforce. The incubator will generate new lines of communication between the existing NSF grants, student internship opportunities with industry partners and faculty sponsored research, interdisciplinary relationships and dialogue regarding laboratory experience.
The City Tech I3 Incubator has its own website.
