Sustainability and Innovation at UC Davis
March 13, 2012 / Professor Andrew Hargadon Blog
In this blog post, Professor Andrew Hargadon discusses how the interdisciplinary culture carried on since UC Davis was founded as a land grant institution—with its mission to diffuse practical agriculture, science and engineering knowledge—makes it the ideal place to solve today’s sustainability challenges.
“It takes bringing multiple stakeholders, public and private, together to identify real changes that are informed by science, enabled by technology, supported by policy, and driven by public and private organizations committed to seeing positive and lasting change. Our campus has both the century-old tradition, the modern research centers and institutes, and the faculty and students capable of leading such change.”
