CITRIS-ITESM Seed Funding Workshop




The 2019 CITRIS & ITESM Seed Funding opportunity invites Principal Investigators at Tecnológico de Monterrey (ITESM) in Mexico to work with researchers at UC Berkeley, UC Davis, UC Davis Health System, UC Merced, and UC Santa Cruz to apply for seed funding that furthers CITRIS and the Banatao Institute research initiatives, strengthens connections among the campuses, and catalyzes early-stage research that can lead to external funding.


CITRIS and the Banatao Institute is hosting a workshop for its member institute, Tecnológico de Monterrey, to bring together researchers for discussions about possible joint proposals. The call for proposals is available at citris-uc.org/itesm-seed-funding. We will offer 3 awards of $25k (USD) each for joint proposals between CITRIS and ITESM researchers.


CITRIS and the Banatao Institute create information technology solutions for society’s most pressing challenges. Established in 2001, the Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society (CITRIS) leverages the interdisciplinary research strengths of multiple UC campuses to advance the University of California’s mission and the innovative spirit of California. The institute was created to shorten the pipeline between world-class laboratory research and the development of cutting-edge applications, platforms, companies, and even new industries.


ITESM comprises 31 campuses in 25 cities across Mexico, and is one of the most academically recognized universities in Latin America.
