INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH TEAMS

Home » Interdisciplinary Research Teams

PACE believes that the most successful startups are born from collaboration between disciplines – science, engineering, law, and business working together to come up with viable recommendations and solutions. Therefore, PACE supports and encourages interdisciplinary studies, in which students from various fields of study  contribute their domain knowledge to produce research and feasibility reports for real-world application.
