2022 CITRIS Seed Award Recipients

This past year, in competition for the 2022 CITRIS Seed Awards, teams from the University of California campuses at Berkeley, Davis, Davis Health, Merced and Santa Cruz submitted proposals that address various challenge areas within the information technology sector, including aviation, climate resilience, digital health and robotics.

Of those highly competetive proposals, eight were chosen for funding - six of which included researchers from UC Davis.  CITRIS at UC Davis is proud to have 11 Principal Investigators associated with these innovative projects.
