One function of universities is to discover new knowledge and develop new technologies to address societal needs.   The Sustainability Solutions Institute is working to identify and support the commercialization of new products, services, and business processes that contribute to a more sustainable future based on UC San Diego research.  Greenovation 2.0 builds upon the popular Greenovation Forum, a public outreach program to showcase UC San Diego sustainability research and technologies, in conjunction with experts from private industry, government and the non-profit community and includes two new components:  1) Rady Cleantech to Market (C2M) certificate educational program and 2) a Sustainability Solutions track in the UCSD Entrepreneurial Challenge http://challenge.ucsd.edu/
The goal of Greenovation 2.0 is to build awareness and foster connections that will enhance the impact of UC San Diego on the growth of the clean tech sustainability sector in our region and beyond. Over time, SSI aspires to build partnerships with other organizations to support sustainability innovation and the commercialization process.  This involves identifying the opportunity/need, funding and conducting research, developing and demonstrating the practical application of the research, and creating a viable business opportunity.  Through the Greenovation process, SSI hopes to give students, faculty, and researchers the tools, connections, and opportunities to put their creativity to work and realize the societal benefits that a great research university can offer.
