Science first - Contributions of a university-industry toxic substances research and teaching program to economic development


Public policy establishing the UC Toxic Substances Research and Teaching Program helped to establish the state's environmental technology industry. The multidisciplinary "science-push" program generated economic development benefits including leveraged research funding and at least two hundred new private sector jobs, twenty-five spin-off companies, and over one hundred patents.
