The LONI Institute
The LONI Institute is not located in a single building; rather, it is a collaboration of researchers among the six LONI sites that creates a multi-disciplinary environment. The CCT is the central hub of the distributed Institute, coordinating activities from LSU.
The institute uses LONI to drive research and education, making Louisiana much more competitive for industrial partnerships with companies that depend on computing advances for their competitive edge.
The LI researchers will initiate projects in cooperation with industry to advance economic development in Louisiana and work toward creating University-Industry Research Centers. Industries that depend on computational sciences include petro-chemical, aerospace, manufacturing, pharmaceutical and many others.
The LONI Institute will receive a $7 million funding from the Board of Regents' Post-Katrina Support Fund Initiative and an additional match of more than $8 million from the participating schools.
