Innovation & Entrepreneurship Awards

The University of California, in partnership with the state of California, awarded $15 million to grants for UC innovation and entrepreneurship in support of California’s climate action goals. Grants of $1 million were awarded to each of UC’s 10 campuses, the UC Health system, the UC statewide division of Agriculture and Natural Resources, the UC statewide Natural Reserve System, and the UC-affiliated Lawrence Livermore and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratories.

The two-year grants build on the innovation and entrepreneurship resources that already exist across the University, with a focus on projects that aid California communities, particularly those most vulnerable to climate disasters or which have borne the brunt of historic inequities.
