The STIP program consists of R&D partners, such as the Center for Wireless Communications and the Contextual Robotics Institute at UC San Diego, WINLAB at Rutgers University, and Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST), commercialization partners such as UC San Diego's Institute for the Global Entrepreneur and UNIST's Business Incubator Center and 4th Industrial Innovation Research Center, city partners like the City of San Diego and the Ulsan Metropolitan City in Korea, and global industry partners from automobile, transportation, IoT and telecommunication sectors.
We are organizing the STIP Global Launch Event on March 1-2 to formally launch new strategic international partnerships between our City partners, R&D partners, commercialization partners and industry partners. We expect participation by UCSD leadership including the UCSD Chancellor and the Dean of Jacobs School of Engineering, the Mayors of the City of San Diego and Ulsan Metropolitan City, and invited attendees from our academic, city, industry and community partners. The event will include signing of MoU between the mayors of the two cities on March 1, and a workshop on March 2 consisting of multiple talks and panels focused on solving real problems related to the future of smart transportation. The event will conclude with a planning session to provide a roadmap for innovation and collaboration between STIP partners, including plans to develop “living laboratories” in the participating university campuses and cities to demonstrate STIP outcomes.
