Annual Report

For CSL, 2015 was both a year of challenges and opportunities. While the State of Illinois continues to have an ongoing budget crisis, CSL has worked to ensure that it has had minimal impact on our research. Much of CSL’s growth has been driven by interdisciplinary research, particularly in the areas of cybersecurity; food, water, and energy; health IT; intelligent robotics; and smart cities.
