PITA is supported through the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED), and is coordinated byLehigh's Advanced Technology for Large Structural Systems (ATLSS) Engineering Research Center and the Institute for Complex Engineered Systems (ICES) at CMU. It is designed to provide economic benefit to Pennsylvania through knowledge transfer, the discovery of new technologies and the retention of highly educated students.
