We are bridging barriers between fundamental knowledge and real-world problems by connecting disciplines, techniques, and ways of thinking.

Bridging Barriers serves as an incubator for some of the boldest interdisciplinary projects at The University of Texas at Austin by supporting researchers from across the Forty Acres as they form broad teams tasked with identifying urgent, real-world issues — and figuring out the best way to solve them in less than a decade. These projects are rooted in collaboration and academic freedom to produce practical solutions to social, environmental, and humanitarian crises. From artificial intelligence to social inequality, teams around campus are laying the groundwork today for what could become a UT Grand Challenge tomorrow.
