For California Institutes for Science and Innovation

— Larry Smarr to direct proposed California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technologies [Cal-(IT)2] —

July 19, 2000 — Governor Gray Davis today announced that the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technologies [Cal-(IT)2], a joint proposal of UC San Diego and UC Irvine, has been selected among the six finalists to be submitted for final consideration as a California Institute for Science and Innovation. Three California Institutes for Science and Innovation, each to be located on a University of California campus, will be chosen in October. The governor’s plan provides $75 million in State funding each year for the next four years to establish the centers; the FY 2000-01 State budget includes the first $75 million installment. The plan also requires $2 from non-State sources for every $1 of State funds devoted to the project.
