The MIT & Masdar Institute Cooperative Program (MIT&MICP) is an ongoing collaborative program with Abu Dhabi to provide advice and guidance in the establishment of a graduate research university – Masdar Institute – focused on alternative energy, sustainability, and advanced technology. In its first six years, Masdar Institute has attracted outstanding faculty and students, built a state-of- the-art campus and laboratories, and launched many collaborative research projects bringing together Masdar Institute and MIT researchers.

MIT&MICP offers MIT and Masdar Institute faculty and students access to new talent, ideas, collaborations, facilities and research infrastructure, research and educational funding, all in a rich environment for discovery.
