The CREATE Team

The Center for Research and Education on Aging and Technology Enhancement (CREATE) represents a consortium of four universities, each with its own research team: University of Miami, Florida State University, Georgia Institute of Technology, and University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

The University of Miami is the coordinating site with Dr. Sara J. Czaja as Director of the overall Center. This collaborative program includes three projects and a student research program. Each of the research sites is conducting separate projects that focus on complementary aspects of human interaction with technology. The intent is to integrate the expertise of the groups into a cohesive program for enhancing the ability of older adults to use technologies.
