The Ramamoorthy International Transdisciplinary (TD) Research Institute (RI)2 is dedicated to the development and promotion of innovative applications of transdisciplinary (TD) research and education applied to complex problems currently faced by the state, nation, and entire world. (RI)2 is a new research and development infrastructure within the Academy of Transdisciplinary Learning & Advanced Studies (ATLAS). Interaction among researchers from diverse disciplines and the opportunities provided for exchange of knowledge and ideas, will be perhaps (RI)2’s most unique and strongest assets.
