The Social Science Matrix Fund

Social Science Matrix is UC Berkeley’s flagship institute for social scientific research. Drawing on Berkeley’s strength in the disciplinary social sciences, Matrix offers a collaborative environment designed to promote new interdisciplinary research questions and to incubate creative new transdisciplinary research programs. Our aim is to adapt, redeploy, and expand Berkeley’s existing research assets to better address the increasingly rapid pace of innovation in research design and to foster the increasingly cross-disciplinary skill sets required to produce cutting-edge multi-methodological social science.
