Office of Research Digital Futures/Space Research Institute for Discovery and Exploration Core Facilities Support Program

As part of UC’s Research2030 investments in infrastructure and growing our research impact, we seek to support and enhance our research community whose activities are aligned with the focus of UC’s Space Research Institute for Discovery and Exploration (SRIDE). UC has unique research facilities and research technology teams located in the new Digital Futures Interdisciplinary Research Building. The goal of this new funding support mechanism is to enable investigators whose research interests are aligned with SRIDE to use these Office of Research – Research Technologies Core facilities to obtain critical data for submission of a competitive extramural proposal, patent application, commercialization agreement, or peer-reviewed manuscript. Applicants may request SRIDE support for projects that require one or more of these Research Technologies Core Facilities.
Participating Research Technologies Core Facilities include: 
The UC Advanced Research Computing Center
Purpose: To assist the researcher performing artificial intelligence, machine learning, data analytics/science and modeling and simulation research and research data management including storage, transfer, collaboration and sharing of data.
