Faculty throughout UTIA research a variety of issues to provide real life solutions for producers and for society as a whole. They do this through “research centers” that are often a collection of experts examining a topic from all sides but not necessarily from a specific central location. Research hubs are more narrowly defined, and UTIA service facilities support all research efforts by providing needed space and expertise. Some service facilities also provide services to the public or industry.
