The 186,000-sf Franklin Antonio Hall at the University of California San Diego is designed for collaborative research, active learning, and transfer of innovation to society. Thirteen large research facilities called “collaboratories” make up the heart of Franklin Antonio Hall. Each collaboratory houses a collection of professor-led research groups from different but related disciplines. Together, these complementary research teams will pursue grand-challenge research in areas like renewable energy technologies, smart cities and smart transportation, wearable and robotics innovations, real-time data analysis and decision making, digital privacy and security, nanotechnology, and precision medicine. Research groups from at least half of the 13 agile centers and institutes launched since 2014 will move into research collaboratories in Franklin Antonio Hall where they’ll be able to share the same physical workspaces. A 250-seat auditorium, two 100-seat classrooms designed for active learning, and collaborative study space for students are also components of Franklin Antonio Hall.
