The Center of Urban Informatics and Progress (CUIP) is a new nexus of research and
innovation at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga that will engage experts
from across the statewide UT system in cross-disciplinary research into solutions
to urban challenges. The vision for CUIP centers around research initiatives related
to Energy, Mobility, Healthcare, Public Safety, Water, and Waste that will directly
or indirectly benefit local citizens while developing methods and models for use around
the world. CUIP is housed at UTC as an independent research entity, underscoring Chattanooga’s
emergence as an innovation hub.
