Schwarzenegger wants more technology research funding

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

Although the proposed funding increase amounts to only a fraction of one percent of the state's annual $101 billion general fund, Schwarzenegger's finance department said the investment could help the university system win back more than $700 million in public and private grants by making the programs more competitive.

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.
