The CRE2 Innovation Space houses and incubates cutting-edge or experimental research and methodologies; helps faculty transform research ideas into concrete possibilities; and assists colleagues in envisioning the future architecture of opportunity for race and/or ethnicity research and collaboration. Labs/Start Ups/Ateliers comprise one important dimension of the Innovation Space. These are highly flexible, Affiliate led and defined spaces in which Affiliates can envision myriad collaborations, engagements, and experimentation in a lab, start up, or atelier model. The Innovation Space is a living space that CRE2  will continue to grow and develop with input from and in partnership with our Affiliates.
