Marine Council, University of California (UCMC)
The University of California Marine Council (UCMC) was established 1999 to influence marine policy, research, and education, and to protect marine resources. UCMC served as a bridge between industry leaders, government legislators, public servants, and university researchers and educators.

One way that the UCMC linked the research to the government and the public was by making its information available through the UC-wide Federal Government Relations Officers and UC staff in Sacramento. By 2000, the California State Legislature had committed to funding UCMC's Initiative on California Coastal Environmental Quality. source

Marine Laboratory, Bodega
Marine Laboratory, Bodega is a research and graduate training installation for marine studies with frontage on sand beaches, mud flats, rocky coast, and a portion of Bodega harbor at Bodega head in Sonoma county.

The University acquired the 326-acre site in 1962, and a $1.1 million grant from the National Science Foundation provided for the construction of a laboratory building that was completed early in 1966. They then scheduled the first organized teaching for the summer of 1966.

A number of University scientists have indicated plans for conducting research at the facility, which can provide space for 40 investigators. Research courses will be given in classroom laboratories accommodating a maximum of 40 students. It is anticipated that five or more postdoctoral fellows will be in residence by the third year of operation.

The laboratory is administered by a director, who holds a joint appointment in the Department of Zoology, and by an advisory committee, both appointed by the President. The University provides maintenance support. Research support will come from federal and private granting agencies. source

Mexico and the United States, Institute for (UC MEXUS)
The University of California Biotechnology Research and Education Program (UC BREP) was established in 1985 to fund emerging research into the many aspects of biotechnology. Some of UC BREP's explored fields of study were agriculture, biochemical engineering, biomaterials science, biomedicine, computer science, economics, environmental sciences, and nanotechnology. Within 17 years of its inception, the program had granted over $20 million to over 800 graduate students and postdoctoral scholars at UC-related campuses, laboratories and research stations. source

Microelectronics Innovation Computer Research Opportunities (MICRO)
The Multicampus Research Unit, Microelectronics Innovation Computer Research Opportunities (MICRO), was established in 1981 as an interface for the industry and the state of California to support microelectronics and computer science research on UC campuses. From 1981 to 2003, MICRO industry partners grew to include over 500 companies, including AT&T, Cisco, Ericsson, Ford, Genentech, Hewlett-Packard, Lockheed-Martin, Lucent Technologies, Nokia, SBC, and Sony.

Researchers seeking grants for their projects receive support from one or more interested industry partners and the state. They also need approval from MICRO's excecutive commmittee. After they receive funding and support, the research they produce belongs to the University of California, but special bargaining opportunities are offered to the sponsor(s). source

Monterey Bay Education, Science and Technology (UC MBEST) Center
In 1991, the University of California created UC MBEST, a multi-partner research and development initiative led by UC Santa Cruz. Its goal is to create innovative solutions to the issues of the 21st century. It functions also as an extension college, offering continuing education classes in C++, Java, SOAP, and other areas on the leading edge of technology. source
