Research Consortia

One of the GCC’s most essential functions is bringing multiple institutions together to form powerful, domain-specific research consortia.


Organized by areas of interest, these focused partnerships catalyze interactions and provide a supportive environment for collaborative research programs requiring expertise beyond that which is possible by any single institution. The Research Consortia serve to catalyze interactions and provide a supportive environment for collaborative research programs that require expertise beyond that available in any one institution.
