About CERI

The Cyber Education and Research Initiative (CERI) at Mizzou fosters advanced cyberinfrastructure innovations to benefit our research and education communities. Our mission? To serve as a multi-university, multi-disciplinary center in areas relating to Big Data Analytics and to foster information technology innovations. Through this, we will further elevate the university’s position as an AAU Research 1 institution.

We provide MU faculty, students and collaborators with services including:

  • Access to advanced computing resources
  • Leadership in initiatives to pursue major funding related to research
  • Facilitation of expert cyberinfrastructure engineer consultations
  • Support for creation of cyber testbed sandboxes with relevant training

We were formed in 2019 with support from a highly competitive 2019 UM System Tier 1 grant and Mizzou Engineering. The center builds on research strengths and serves to meet cyber needs across the UM System and its peer institutions, as well as the funding priorities of industries and federal agencies.
