Berkeley Changemaker Technology Innovation Grant Awardees Announced

June 25, 2020

Back in February we began to put out the call for innovation proposals from all over campus, asking them share their alignment with the Chancellor's top strategic priorities and also to address what the University needs NOW.  For a top research University, no matter what hard times we're having, innovation isn't just a "nice to have" - it's an essential ingredient to maintaining our excellence and scaling access & equity for a Berkeley education.

Call for Proposals: Berkeley Changemaker Technology Innovation & Connected Campus Grants

March 2, 2020

UPDATED May 5, 2020: The deadline has been extended through May 18th, to allow more time given the difficulties we all face with the Covid-19 pandemic.*

Connected Campus

The Berkeley Connected Campus

The CTO Innovation Program recognizes the importance of the University's physical infrastructure, both the new as well as the historical. Current "smart" and "Internet of Things" technologies can bridge the physical and digital campus, making previously unimaginable experiences and efficiencies possible. It will take a multi-organizational endeavor, convening people from different units to rethink the processes, technology and information to realize this vision.
