Fueling Commercialization of Clean Technology

UC San Diego and San Diego State University are partnering to accelerate the commercialization of clean technologies via a $1 million U.S. Department of Energy grant. Under the new grant, the Jacobs School's William J. von Liebig Center for Entrepreneurism and Technology Advancement and the UC San Diego Rady School of Management, in partnership with the San Diego State University, will provide seed grants, fellowships and extensive mentoring support for students and faculty working on the most promising “green” technologies through a series of Regional Energy Innovation Challenges. The program will connect innovators, business students, entrepreneurs and sources of capital to each other and with other initiatives within the clean energy space on campus, in the region and worldwide. This effort builds on the Clean Tech Innovation and Commercialization program, which has been supported by Sempra Energy Foundation, the Kauffman Foundation, and the Kaplan Family Trust.

Rosibel Ochoa, director of the UC San Diego von Liebig Center, is helping to lead regional efforts to accelerate the commercialization of clean technologies via a $1 million U.S. Department of Energy grant.
