UT System Initiatives


Transformational research conducted at The University of Texas System has made it one of the world’s most innovative institutions. As the second-largest academic research system in the United States, UT System produces nearly $2.7 billion in research expenditures each year, files a new patent every two days, and launches a new company every nine days. The University of Texas System is committed to attracting elite faculty to Texas and investing in groundbreaking research. Over the past decade, the UT System has invested more than $300 million in programs to attract and retain star faculty and researchers and to fund system-wide research initiatives. These initiatives leverage UT System’s existing strengths, combined with strategic investments, to make quantum leaps in research and healthcare.

We are using Influuent to help make these system-wide research initiatives and the faculty behind them more accessible. Find out more about some of these important initiatives:
