The Industry-University Cooperative Research Program (IUCRP) awards hundreds of UC Discovery Grants each year in five fields of science and engineering, in addition to offering a Microelectronics grant. UC Discovery Grants form a 3-way partnership between UC, Industry Sponsors, and the State of California.

Overall, UC Discovery Grants awards up to $20 million in matching funds each year in science and engineering to UC faculty interested in partnerships with industrial sponsors.

Also, at a  IBM-CITRIS meeting last week at UC Berkeley,  Sally M. Kane, Ph.D., Senior NSF Advisor (Directorate for the Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences) provided a pointer to a new NSF solicitation, including 2002 quantitiative indicators of changes in U.S. science, engineering, and tecnhology.
