December 2010 marks the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology's 10th anniversary. Calit2's research unites faculty, students and technical professionals at UC San Diego and UC Irvine with private-sector partners and state or federal funding agencies to explore how emerging information technologies and ...telecommunications can transform arenas vital to the state's economy and our citizens' quality of life. In its second decade, Calit2 aims to focus much of its research on four application thrusts of broad societal importance: culture; energy; the environment; and health.
To do so, Calit2 will continue to invest in the development of cutting-edge technologies that can enable advances across multiple sectors and industries. Building on past successes, Calit2 will focus these enabling technologies on wireless communications, photonics, cyberspace, as well as nanotechnology and micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS). The institute will continue to develop 'living laboratories' and research spaces to house multidisciplinary collaborations -- ensuring that the breadth and crosscutting nature of Calit2's research teams will result in new technologies, systems and expertise that are consistent with the institute's successes to date.See More
