Clean technology has reached public critical mass at Rady with the launch of the California Clean Innovation conference. Led by Jay Brandeis ’07, seven Rady students are involved in the 2007 conference focused on energy and transportation. The event will be held at Caltech on Friday, May 11th and embody the long term collaborative efforts of students from Rady, UCLA Anderson, and the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena. Vinod Khosla is the keynote speaker of the one day event. More details can be found in the Caltech press release.
From a local perspective, this conference is a significant milestone for UCSD’s chapter of Net Impact (founded in 2005 at Rady) and clearly positions clean technology as an innovation pillar of this program.
