Letter from the Director
Here at CITRIS, we take pride in our mission. We were established by the state of California to listen to the needs of society and work closely with industry and with our partners within government agencies to turn our technology into solutions for societal challenges (view our 2013 Impact Report online). Being a four-campus institution allows us to bring together the best resources within the University of California system and concentrate on such issues as water, health care, and energy. We do inspired work with our colleagues at the Department of Water Resources and the California Energy Commission, to name but a few. Our mission is to take UC research and apply to where it is most needed in society.
For more than a decade, we have strived to live up to our mission, and within these pages are more details about how we have achieved that within our four initiatives:
As a public entity, we are always happy to have conversations with you. Please feel free to contact me and our staff members if you have any questions or ideas about how we can best work for society.
