One of 12 institutes at CU Boulder, ATLAS is home to researchers who transcend traditional disciplinary structures of engineering, design, science and art to inspire new realms of invention. We make tangible and digital tools and methods that shape how people interact with the world for a more inclusive, inspired and sustainable society.

Individually, ATLAS labs serve as hubs for specialized in-depth research in textiles, human-computer interaction, biomaterials, nanotech, data, fabrication, music, language, art, performance and more. Together they comprise a larger force for unconventional lines of inquiry, radical creative expression and spontaneous collaboration.
