Advanced Research and Technology Collaboratory for the Americas

Advanced Research and Technology Collaborative for the Americas

The Advanced Research and Technology Collaboratory for the Americas (ARTCA), was formed to support and guide effective collaboration between universities, research centers, and industry in the interest of human and economic growth across the Americas. The original ARTCA partners, I-CHASS, NCSA, the Costa Rica-USA Foundation (CRUSA) and the Centro Nacional de Alta Tecnologia (CeNAT) come from the United States and Costa Rica and anticipate the involvement of interdisciplinary inter-university, and international collaborators from across South, Central and North America.

The overriding objective is to promote interdisciplinary, international, and inter-university cooperation and to enhance advanced and applied research, the development of human resources and advanced technologies, including supercomputing technologies for the sciences, engineering, humanities, arts and social sciences, for example, in the Costa Rica 2050 project.
