Center for Urban Science and Progress (CUSP)

Center for Urban Science and Progress (CUSP) was founded in 2011-12 by New York University and NYU-Poly. Steven Koonin was appointed as the founding Director of the Center.

"CUSP simultaneously responds to two important challenges:
  • The very specific challenge issued by the Bloomberg Administration to create an applied science institute in New York that will make the city a world capital of science and technology, and lead to new jobs, and
  • the grand technical, intellectual, engineering, academic, and human challenges posed by a rapidly urbanizing world."
