Schwarzenegger wants more technology research funding

Posted on Sunday, December 31 2006 @ 09:15:03 CET by

The University of California, Berkeley and UC San Diego are in the running for a $500 million grant from British Petroleum to open an Energy Biosciences Institute. Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and UC San Diego are also competing with universities nationwide for a $200 million federal grant to build a next-generation supercomputer - one 1,000-times faster than any that exists today.
