Berkeley's vast I&E ecosystem provides education, infrastructure, and numerous resources to inventors, entrepreneurs, and startups.
The dynamism of the campus's I&E ecosystem is driven by interactions with leading corporations, investors, and other entities, as well as startups.
If you have proposals or agreements from a foundation or other non-profit entity (such as a U.S. or foreign university), or state or federal government funds, contact the Sponsored Projects Office for assistance.
Please remember to build the 20% indirect cost rate into your budget.
The largest percentage of the overhead, 10.5%, is returned to the I&E program and its supporting administrative unit.
