The von Liebig Center for Entrepreneurism and Technology Advancement at the UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering in conjunction the Rady School of Management, San Diego State University, CONNECT and CleanTech San Diego announce the launch of the Southern California Regional Renewable Energy Technology Acceleration Program sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy.

This program is intended to accelerate the commercialization of novel renewable energy technologies developed within research institutes and universities throughout the Southern California region.

Selected science and engineering graduate students and postdoctoral researchers from local universities or research institutes will each be awarded a fellowship of $40,000 to be used to support one or more than one graduate student and/or postdoctoral researcher on the selected project. The von Liebig Fellows will collaborate with MBA students from either the Rady School of Management at UCSD or San Diego State University and will receive business mentoring from the von Liebig Center's Technology and Business Advisors (worth an estimated $15,000) providing practical training on technology commercialization.
