As an "institute without walls" that both produces knowledge by and develops processes for crossing disciplinary boundaries, the Hybrid Vigor Institute has three main goals:

1. To inspire the creation of fresh and dynamic research agendas by introducing researchers to important, relevant work that falls within their areas of inquiry, yet outside their specific disciplines.

2. To establish metrics and best practices for interdisciplinary research that can embrace both the quantitative rigor of the natural sciences and the qualitative inquiries of the social sciences, arts and humanities.

3. To develop and deploy cutting-edge collaboration, information extraction and knowledge management technologies so that working researchers from any discipline may easily acquire and share relevant work and information about their areas of interest.

hybridvigor.net is where our work toward these goals will be housed.
