Accelerating Technology Development Across the Border
UC San Diego and the Universidad Autóa de Baja California (UABC) have joined forces to stimulate technology commercialization and economic development in the Southern California-Baja, California mega-region. Under the collaboration, UC San Diego's top-ranked Jacobs School of Engineering and its William J. von Liebig Center for Entrepreneurism and Technology Advancement, along with UABC's highly regarded Institute of Engineering and the Center for Technology Development and Transfer, will foster research and academic collaborations among faculty, graduate students and post-doctoral scholars, as well as create a fellowship program for students from the Baja, California region to pursue graduate engineering education at the Jacobs School.
The partnership, named the CREATE Alliance (Crossborder Regional Entrepreneurism and Technology Alliance), is expected to boost economic development in the mega-region by the advancement of discoveries from both universities.
