2 Calit2 Continues to Pursue Its Initial Mission: Envisioning How the Extension of Innovative Telecommunications and Information Technologies Throughout the Physical World will Transform Critical Applications Important to the California Economy and its Citizens Quality Of Life. Calit2 is a University of California Institutional Innovation Experiment on How to Invent a Persistent Collaborative Research and Education Environment that Provides Insight into How the UC, a Major Research University, Might Evolve in the Future. Calit2 Review Report: p.1

3 Two Calit2 Buildings Provide New Laboratories for Living in the Future Convergence Laboratory Facilities –Nanotech, BioMEMS, Chips, Radio, Photonics –Virtual Reality, Digital Cinema, HDTV, Gaming Over 1000 Researchers in Two Buildings –Linked via Dedicated Optical Networks UC Irvine Preparing for a World in Which Distance is Eliminated… $100M From State for New Facilities
