McLean, United States – MITRE, a not-for-profit corporation dedicated to research and development in the public interest, and Miami Dade College(MDC), the higher learning institutions, are partnering to work on many of the complex challenges facing our nation. The collaboration will also enhance workforce development and economic growth in Miami.
“We are very excited to partner with MITRE to address global challenges and continue advancing education in emerging and growing technology fields while supporting Miami’s tech community,” says Madeline Pumariega, president, Miami Dade College.
Engagements may include collaborative research and development with MITRE staff and MDC students and faculty in areas including Web3, blockchain, cryptocurrency, artificial intelligence (AI), cybersecurity, climate science, and digital health. It will also include curriculum development and internship opportunities for MDC students and supporting the growth and acceleration of the Miami ecosystem.
“We’re proud to partner with Miami Dade College to combine our shared values and resources to solve problems for a safer world,” says Julie Gravallese, MITRE vice president, workplace innovation. “Through our work together in Miami, this initiative will have local, national, and global impact. The ability to engage resources like MDC’s business innovation and technology centre, which studies technology’s role in digital transformation, process automation, and analytics, is just one example of how we can more effectively drive innovation and accelerate solutions in the public interest together.”
Last year, MITRE opened three innovation hubs (iHub), including one in Miami, to accelerate innovation for public impact. Working with MDC, MITRE will help expand, engage, and develop diverse talent through internship and faculty development opportunities.
One recent example of collaboration with MDC was a virtual meeting held this fall to address public sector use cases, security challenges, and economic implications of Web3 in the Miami area.
