Mitre and Purdue University have partnered to conduct joint research and development efforts in a range of areas including cybersecurity, quantum computing, microelectronics, hypersonics and autonomy.
Mitre said Tuesday the “vision partnership” builds on the establishment of Mitre’s on-campus location at the Purdue Convergence Center for Innovation and Collaboration in West Lafayette, Indiana, in addition to a separate cyber institute.
Other initial areas of focus for the innovation-focused partnership include avionics, data science and systems for food, energy and water resources.
James Cook, vice president of strategic engagement and partnerships at Mitre, said the two entities seek to establish resilience techniques for cyber-physical concepts while promoting student participation and workforce development.
The recently signed agreement builds on prior partnerships between Purdue and Mitre on initiatives such as a cybersecurity project with the Office of Naval Research, COVID-19 response efforts with the Mayo Clinic and a Mitre-funded joint research initiative on quantum science.
