The Institute for Digital Research and Education (IDRE) is a cooperative of faculty and technologists working to advance the existing body of computing knowledge and expertise at UCLA. For details, refer to its latest IDRE strategic plan and IDRE’s charter and bylaws.
IDRE’s mission is to lead a campus-wide effort on innovative research and education on the use and development of advanced cyberinfrastructure methods, tools, and services. This involves bringing together researchers working in domain, computational, data, and information sciences, and digital scholarship and creative activities.
IDRE’s vision is to sustain UCLA as a world leader in the innovative use, application, and development of computational, data, and information sciences, and digital technologies that drive cultural and societal change.
IDRE programs are focused on the challenges and opportunities associated with four areas critical to advancing innovative research and scholarship: Computational Science, Data Science, Information Science, and Digital Scholarship and Creative Activities.
Through the IDRE Research Technology Group (RTG), IDRE provides services and support aligned with the five program areas. IDRE’s unique computational capability includes High Performance Computing resources and expertise, Grid and Cloud Access Services, Cluster Services, the Grid Portal, and UCLA’s data center system.
