Our Goal

CBSA’s goal is to accelerate research that uses digital resources to understand and predict social, economic, business and government processes from the ground up. We do this by providing and coordinating resources to enhance multi-college collaboration, the sharing of ideas, and innovation across the University. Unlike a traditional bricks and mortar research center, CBSA operates as a virtual entity. To promote collaboration and innovation, CBSA offers the following services: (1) Seed Grant Program (2) Social Lunch Program and (3) Links to other centers and programs at MSU.
