We are now accepting proposals for Berkeley's first-ever CTO Technology Innovation program. The CTO is looking to support proposals that will enhance the University's operations, bolster its research endeavors or help transform instruction and the classroom experience. The innovation project you propose should involve some combination of people, process, technology and information and support one or more of UC Berkeley's three key campus strategies (pdf):
Empowering Engaged Thinkers and Global Citizens to Change Our World
Focusing on the Good: Innovative Solutions for Society’s Great Challenges
Embracing the California Spirit: Diverse, Inclusive, Entrepreneurial
There are two flavors of proposal: the first is for general technology innovation and the second option is for the Berkeley Connected Campus. We use Amazon's "Future Press Release" method to help people articulate the positive impact your proposal will have. We can't wait to see your ideas! If you would like to discuss them before submitting, please let us know.
