CI2 Concept Research Lab (CRL)
The CI2 at USM encourages students to create, collaborate, and innovate in order to contribute to the community and our partners through self-directed research and projects. It is a unique space in which students develop skills for the workforce of tomorrow.
We emphasize collaboration on cross-disciplinary design projects that demonstrate creative research, initiative, and innovation. The projects need to have the potential for creative expression and/or commercialization. We provide students and partners with a space and the resources they need to reach their goals. Projects are supported by the CI2 staff and partners to allow the students the freedom and opportunity to learn their own way. Students are encouraged to think critically and collaborate to solve problems in the community or around the world. The CI2 hosts events and presentations where students are encouraged to show what they have done to people and businesses in the community.
Join our growing collaboration of creative individuals by reaching out and getting involved. We are always looking for talented partners and driven students to create, innovate, and collaborate at the CI2. If you are one of those people or would like to work with us feel free to contact us.
