Inaugural Innovation [X] Grants Awarded To Interdisciplinary Teams

Assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science & Engineering, Theodora Chaspari, will collaborate with a team of Texas A&M faculty and students on an Innovation [X] project studying adaptive environments.

Through the Innovation [X] Program, the teams' yearlong projects will tackle a range of societal issues including food insecurity, the effect of pandemics on local economies, heat extremes and disaster resilience.

Justin Baetge/Texas A&M Engineering Texas A&M University's School of Innovation has provided $120,000 grants to six interdisciplinary teams of researchers and faculty that will work alongside students to find solutions to real-world problems.

According to the School of Innovation Associate Dean Robert Shandley, the School of Innovation aims to bring together students and faculty from a variety of disciplines who otherwise wouldn’t have the opportunity to work together.

The program provides an opportunity for Texas A&M students to engage in projects that translate research into actions that could have an impact on the community, nation and world.
