• CITRIS and the Banatao Institute - Welcome

    351 views 2 months ago
    The Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society (CITRIS) and the Banatao Institute create information technology solutions for society’s most pressing challenges.


    CITRIS and the Banatao Institute leverage the research strengths of University of California campuses at Berkeley, Davis, Merced and Santa Cruz, and operate within the greater ecosystem of the University and the innovative and entrepreneurial spirit of Silicon Valley. The institute was created by the California state legislature to shorten the pipeline between world-class laboratory research and the development of applications, platforms, companies, and even new industries. CITRIS and the Banatao Institute facilitate interdisciplinary work among hundreds of University of California faculty members, students, corporate partners, and international institutions. Together with these public and private partners, we are shaping the future of technology in ways that cross traditional boundaries.

    From concept to prototype, the CITRIS invention ecosystem includes competitive seed funding, specialized testbeds, Marvell Nanofabrication Laboratory, CITRIS Invention Lab, and the CITRIS Foundry startup accelerator.

    We bring the expertise of multiple disciplines to bear on critical challenges such as designing sustainable energy, water and transportation systems; fostering civic engagement in the digital era; improving the human experience through advances in robotics and automation; and modernizing health care delivery. CITRIS and the Banatao Institute represent a bold and exciting vision that engages one of the top university systems in the world to generate social and economic benefit.

  • CITRIS Women In Technology Play all

    Gender diversity among leadership teams and the broader workforce offers demonstrated advantages for innovative thinking, job satisfaction, and corporate bottom lines. Yet the percentage of women in computing jobs has actually declined over the last 25 years, and now stands at roughly 25% in both industry and academia.

    Causes for this gap remain unclear. Tech companies and other employers have tried offering flexible work hours and generous family leave; some universities allow women to stop the tenure clock to care for young children.

    Are such policies sufficient to bring women into parity with men, both in numbers and in pay, or are other nuances hindering full participation of women in the tech workforce? What incentives have inspired those women who have persisted in these fields? And what unique perspectives do women bring to a range of domains that make technology solutions more creative, robust, and equitable?

    At this public event, leaders and champions of women in technology offered their thoughts on challenges to achieving gender diversity at all organizational levels of industry, academia, and the public sector. The inaugural CITRIS Athena Awards were also presented to honor inspiring women and organizations making outstanding technical contributions and providing support for the next generation of women and girls.
