Carbon Cycle 2.0 Special Event – LIGTT: LBNL Institute for Globally Transformative Technologies, Mar 8

Global human development faces a fundamental challenge:

many countries seem permanently caught in a poverty trap,

while others build their economies on a path of certain

ecological unsustainability. This dichotomy poses a critical

challenge: can developing countries climb out of poverty

while preserving their ecological health?

We are excited to announce the creation of the Lawrence

Berkeley National Laboratory Institute for Globally

Transformative Technologies (LIGTT, pronounced “Light”).

The Institute has an ambitious mandate to foster the

discovery, development and deployment of a new generation

of technologies that advance breakthrough, relevant and

sustainable methods of fighting global poverty and related

social ills. Another important mission is to foster a new

generation of research[ers] powered with LBNL’s scientific

skills and cultural intelligence to focus on technologies for

the global poor.

In this presentation we will share the vision, framework and

goals of LIGTT. We invite you to come interact with us about

your previous experiences along with potential ideas for

future projects in this arena
