About the ALCRC
The Alabama Cyber Research Consortium (ALCRC) is a partnership of the seven PhD-granting Universities in Alabama along with additional industrial and research affiliates. Formed in early 2013, after years of informal and formal collaborations between smaller groups of the partner Universities, the ALCRC is the culmination of our individual and collective commitments to research, advanced development, education, and outreach in all areas of the cyber domain. The ALCRC is an active group of scientists, engineers, and affiliates committed to creating solutions with practical impact on the state, local, regional, and national economy, and to helping consumers, corporations, and the public sector solve real problems and avoid significant harm involving cybercrime and related national security issues.
The Alabama Cyber Research Consortium will function as one team of highly skilled, agile and accountable experts equipped with leading-edge training, education and technology in the rapidly changing field that is cyber. Strengthened by partnerships, and able to adapt to provide expertise and capability whenever and wherever required, the Alabama Cyber Research Consortium seeks to support the state of Alabama and the United States through timely, innovative and meaningful solutions to the cyber challenges faced today, and in decades to come.
The mission of the Alabama Cyber Research Consortium is to promote collaboration and sharing of resources, capabilities and expertise between and among the member institutions involved in the cyber domain to advance research, education, training, outreach and economic development to the benefit of the state of Alabama and the United States across academe, business/industry and government.
